## Reflection: Routines and Procedures Shortest to Longest - You Knew It, Now Glue It! - Section 1: Daily Calendar & Counting Review

Being in the classroom shouldn't always mean sitting in the classroom and doing what we are told like robots. Being in the classroom should be fun and engaging. Use kinesthetic activities to excite children about learning. When possible, use cross-body and alternating side movements so both sides of the brain are engaged. This increases synapses in the brain. For more information on this concept, look on Braingym. com and do a search for brain-based learning. It's information every teacher needs to know.
