Thank you, Jill, for spreading the "movement message!" It's so important that parents understand their little ones DON'T learn best by sitting still! Most children are experiential learners, who absorb information best when employing multiple senses! And research has shown that more of the brain is activated during physical activity than during seatwork.

I've been a children's physical activity specialist for 27 years, and one of my life goals is to help parents understand that movement is the child's preferred mode of learning. So thanks again for your wonderful post!
