“Fundamentals” is a program that is available to first grade students. The program is a hybrid program with characteristics of the Boost Up Program, Brain Gym, and Action Based Learning. I’m provided the academic content that the first graders are working on. Reading and math concepts are presented in a movement based setting.
The following thoughts may help you understand the program:
Each day we have an “obstacle” course that includes balancing, rolling, climbing, spinning, or crawling activities. The obstacle course stays the same for two weeks.
Music is an important part of the program. Feeling and moving to the beat (rhythm) improves language development and silent reading. Many styles of music are included in the class. The program is meant to be a multi-sensory approach to learning.
