EN, AMEN, AMEN!! A middle school instructor with certifications in English 6-12, Elementary ED K-6, ESE K-12, French K-12, DANCE K-12, Music K-12, and Drama 6-12; I AGREE WHOLE HEARTEDLY with the use of movement to HARNESS, DIRECT, and CHANNEL ENERGY in a positive manner to enhance learning!
I encourage you to please write more about this subject. I have always believed in using the body to enhance learning! Movement helps relieve "pent up energies"; creates "calm", no matter the age or student profile, "mainstream" or "ESE". I believe movement is a reflection of the psyche; show me one who moves with vigor and excitement, and I will show you a person with an active and vibrant mind!
