Play Time Helps Kids with ADD to Focus
Greeting from the Land of OZ!
I am on a bit of a soapbox today! As a longtime classroom teacher, I am constantly aware of the demands of the curriculum that is being driven by high-stakes testing. Where is the time for creativity that our kids with ADD need? When do they get to move? Who in the world thought that it was a good idea to limit recess?
When children with Attention Deficit Disorder are given a reason to move their bodies, good things can happen. Creativity may be increased. They are less bored. Increasing oxygen to the brain enhances their mindís ability to focus. Whatís the best part of this treatment? Itís childís play!
What are your favorite ways to move your body and send oxygen to your brain? I love to push about 10 grocery carts at a time...for an hour or two! Strange?? Oh, yes...but it makes me feel strong and youthful!
To participate in free, fun online discussions, this site has a community forum all about Attention Deficit Disorder located here -
I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!
Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
Have a blessed week!
