Brain Fitness – It’s Not Just For Adults

Brain Fitness – It’s Not Just For Adults

The architecture, the super highway of the brain, is laid down in the first years of life as parents talk to their very young children.  The left hemisphere is where skills for language and math are stored.  The right hemisphere is where skills for social interaction are stored.

Both adults and children need to exercise their brains just as they exercise their muscles, in order to improve their ability to learn.

Memory games are exercises that help improve the ability to pay attention and concentrate.  These types of exercises can be done at home, in the classroom, while traveling, anywhere.

For the child who always asks “Why?” play games that channel their natural curiosity and thirst for knowledge.  The brain loves new things and will thrive when learning something new.

You can also go to for brain games to use with your kids.
