I just wanted you to be aware of a great DVD by Robyn Cox, a mom and educator from New Zealand.
Please check out and share this info: an illuminating 15-minute video clip (Chapter 1) about the building blocks of learning readiness is available on http://www.getreadyforschool.co.nz. It's part of a phenomenal 3-hr. DVD available from New Zealand about this topic. Building blocks must be in place BEFORE reading, writing and arithmetic can take place.
The DVD shows Brain Gym and other movements that help our kids succeed in school. If you'd like a copy of the DVD, let me know; I have a U.S.-based source for the DVD.
