THE KINETIC SCALE: Beyond Gross & Fine Motor

In our new book, you'll see we're introducing a brand new tool we haven't talked about yet here on the blog. We call it THE KINETIC SCALE, going beyond gross and fine motor to better understand how movement fuels the body and the brain forlearning. (Oh, and health and fitness too!)

I like to think of The Kinetic Scale as the food pyramid for movement. It breaks movement down into its essential "nutrients," making it easy to see and understand what's happening in children's development. And of course, once you know what goes into it, it's easy (and fun!) to create a "well balanced diet" of movement kids need each day.

We'll talk more about The Kinetic Scale and how to use it in the coming weeks. But in the meantime, once again, Cheryl and I would like to thank all of you for your inspiration, support, and encouragement in bringing A Moving Child Is A Learning Child to life.

(And by the way, the next time someone asks you to sound serious on a playground full of kids, tell them that's a seriously silly idea!)
