The Benefits are Endless!
The more a child tumbles, climbs, creeps, and crawls, the more densely wired the brain becomes for academic success. Movement is the architect of a child's brain. The two hemispheres of the brain are designed to constantly communicate with one another. The left side of the brain controls the right side of the body, and vice versa. Bilateral activities common to all gymnastics programs, require both sides of the body to work together and separately.
Coordinated movement patterns create efficiency in the brain. Efficient pathways create fluent readers who complete reading tasks easier. For example, during reading, the left hemisphere attends to letters and sequence of words, while the right side of the brain focuses on comprehending what is read. Reading fluency depends on an intimate conversation between the two hemispheres of the brain creating a clear signal. Bouncing on the trampoline, tumbling on a mat, swing from the bars- all these activities help with the brain and aid in not only physical but academic success.
