WOW.... Week #12 of the BRAIN Initiative -- Are we making progress?  From the excitement I hear in the e-mails I receive it sounds like we are!!  Are you posting the fact each week? Are you e-mailing to 5 new people each week?  The kids are counting on us... and appreciate the efforts you are making!!

In honor of Screen Free Week and Earth Day I have posted a brain fact on the positive  difference playing outdoors can make! If you would like a wealth of information on the importance of play, Carol Torgan, Ph.D has put together a extremely valuable list of over 200 resources related to play. You can enjoy it here.

Have you sent in your nomination? 

There are many terrific programs and agencies already nominated from all over the world! I invite you to nominate programs, schools, organizations, or agencies that would benefit from a donated brain activity packet in either English or Spanish. 

The winner for the donation from Week #11 is below! 

 

Following is the Week #12 BRAIN insight to share:

Deborah -
Thanks so much for featuring my list of play resources, which now has close to 300 entries. I welcome suggestions and am happy to note there seems to be an increasing number of new organizations, bloggers, and especially events.

Carol,

It is so wonderful that you have compiled this FANTASTIC list. It is terrific that it keeps growing also!!

Hopefully, as a result the benefits and need for play will finally be realized by EVERYONE!!

Are you award of the new Naturally Developing Brains packet I collaboratively developed? It provides activity ideas and brain development information through nature and outdoor play. Fifty percent of the proceeds goes to the promotion of nature pre-school efforts!
