By circling together, we illustrate our community bond. We meet, with focus, in the present. Educational content comes through multiple senses and disciplines- healthy for thought, feeling and action.

Movement develops our cognitive, social, emotional, and physical capacities. Thus, circle times may include simple forms of “braindance” to support learning.

“Braindance” was invented by Anne Green Gilbert. She patterned dance warm-up and circle time activities to support the central nervous system, motor skills, cognition, awareness, confidence, and empathy.

Ms. Nora recently took a braindance class from Creative Dance Center. The class was for educators to use and adapt braindance with their students. What they teach melds naturally with the song, verse, and movements that we at WRFS already use to learn and grow.

 

Come and join our Circle, we hope to see you soon!
