I’ve spent much time studying brain research and how the brain learns, I’ve put the best of what I’ve learned into my products. We know that children learn best through social interaction, movement, visuals, repetition, emotional experiences, and connecting the information with something they already know. Most of my products are games or fun activities to practice skills. Plus, they have been favorites for my second graders!
