S.M.A.R.T. Workshop

Become your students' favorite teacher, a S.M.A.R.T. Teacher! 

S.M.A.R.T. is a multi-sensory approach to learning based on brain research. It develops physiological asmartworkshop.jpgnd neurological readiness skills essential to classroom success. 

 

Become a S.M.A.R.T. Teacher and...

  • Learn a multi-sensory approach to teaching.
  • Learn to enhance the critical readiness skills students need to succeed in school.
  • Understand how to look at children developmentally and apply activities for developing and/or enhancing students’ visual perception, eye-hand coordination, auditory skills and large and fine muscle skills, all necessary tools for learning to read and achieving academic success. 

Students who have not fully developed readiness skills often struggle with academics or behavior. Become a S.M.A.R.T. Teacher and transform your classroom into a playful atmosphere, help children stay healthy and help them reach their full academic potential. Ensure that meaningful brain-based movement is a part of your curriculum and provide your students with the multi-sensory stimulation they need to learn and grow.

At our S.M.A.R.T. Workshops, you will:

  • Learn how the brain typically develops and what might interrupt that development 
  • Experience the S.M.A.R.T. activities, which are movement-based, fun for children and easily incorporated into the day 
  • Understand how to look at students developmentally 
  • Create the implementation tools you need to immediately start S.M.A.R.T. 
  • Become re-energized as educators and ready to create your own S.M.A.R.T. classrooms!
