Facts on Brain Research

 

2. “The (brain is the) only unfinished organ at birth, it continues to grow throughout the lifecycle” - Beginnings & Beyond: Foundations in Early Childhood Education By Ann Miles Gordon

3. “The principle task of the brain in early childhood is the connection of brain cells, as a child’s brain is two and a half times as active as an adult’s”

4. “Brain connections that have been reinforced by repeated connections tend to remain while those that are not are discarded”- (Galinsky – 1997)

5. “The brain is strongly run by patterns rather than facts. Children learn best with curriculum developed around themes, integrated learning whole experiences”- Beginnings & Beyond: Foundations in Early Childhood Education By Ann Miles Gordon

6. "Children benefit when neuronal connections are made through body movement. These connections will help them develop the neuronal connections for reading when they are ready."- (pg. 8) Jensen (1998)
