Brain Gym – exercising your brain and preparing it for learning. In Croatia we learned some basic exercises.
On our school dr. Ljudevita Pivka we worked with 6th grade students with mild intellectuall disabilities. We conducted brain gym exercises one month. First we drank a glass of water and did some basic exercises for writing skills ( double doudle, arm activation), for reading skills (brain buttons, cross crawl, lazy eights) and thinking skills ( earth buttons, neck rolls, thinking cap).
We worked brain gym twice a week. After the exercises, the students were mostly more calm and focused on learning. Pupils were very interested for exercises and they like brain gym very much.
