Dr. L's Brainy Resources

The brain is the only organ that is shaped by outside experiences. What you do and think changes how your brain is wired.  This principle applies to children and adults of any age. New experiences create opportunities for new brain connections. Lack of experience and information limits the brain's ability to construct learning networks. Unused ones wither or are pruned away making them less available to solve and find new problems. How you manage your classroom and relate to the children in your care changes their brains and yours. Knowing how children grow and develop will help caregivers to make better choices for curriculum, learning, and behavior management. Enjoy these resources provided to help you learn, change your brain and positively affect the lives of children in your care.
