Movement is at the very core of how children develop intellectually, emotionally, socially, and of course, physically. Here at Moving Smart we foster children's naturally move-to-learn style while helping parents and teachers understand the comprehensive benefits of all that wiggling!

That's why we say "A Moving Child is a Learning Child."

THE KINETIC SCALE: Beyond Gross & Fine Motor


Well, it's official! A Moving Child Is a Learning Child is in print!

Here's a little preview



In our new book, you'll see we're introducing a brand new tool we haven't talked about yet here on the blog. We call it THE KINETIC SCALE, going beyond gross and fine motor to better understand how movement fuels the body and the brain for learning. (Oh, and health and fitness too!)


I like to think of The Kinetic Scale as the food pyramid for movement. Ibreaks movement down into its essential "nutrients," making it easy to see and understand what's happening in children's development. And of course, once you know what goes into it, it's easy (and fun!) to create a "well balanced diet" of movement kids need each day.

















We'll talk more about The Kinetic Scale and how to use it in the coming weeks. But in the meantime, once again, Cheryl and I would like to thank all of you for your inspiration, support, and encouragement in bringing A Moving Child Is A Learning Child to life.

(And by the way, the next time someone asks you to sound serious on a playground full of kids, tell them that's a seriously silly idea!)

  21. I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I came across this in my search for something relating to this.

  38. When it comes to following the NBA season, you'll need a TV service with at least ABC, ESPN, TNT and NBA TV. We compare AT&T TV, YouTube TV, FuboTV and more to find out which service is the best for basketball fans. After some early COVID-19 issues, fans in a growing number of arenas have made their way back into the stands just in time for the playoff push. It's been an exciting season, but you don't need to be in the stands or have cable TV to watch the games live. For cord-cutters who want to save some money, your best bet is to subscribe to a nba finals 2021 live tv streaming service. But that's where things get confusing.

  39. The standard sizes of custom boxes range from small to extra large, but most manufacturers can accommodate most standard sizes. Most foundation boxes are manufactured in either matte or gloss finish, and most offer some level of custom printing and design to add a sense of uniqueness to the packaging. Although many standard sized foundation boxes are used for shipping, many cosmetic companies prefer to use custom boxes for their packaging needs.

  42. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
