Wow, people are excited about the BRAIN Initiative. It is so exciting to know this information is being shared in so many ways! There are numerous people from all over the country (and world actually) sharing the BRAIN Insight in an effort to make the importance of the early years common knowledge. It is wonderful to have received messages from so many of you already. This is exciting and I am so thrilled to have you participating! It would be great if we had a way to track how many people are sharing the information. Let me know if you have suggestions for how we can get a real idea of how many people are involved.
I received a suggestion from a BRAIN Initiative participant to have nominations for Spanish packet donations as well as the English packets. I think this is a terrific idea. I invite you to also nominate programs, schools, organizations, or agencies that would benefit from brain activity packets in Spanish. The winner for the donation from Week #2 is below! Continue to send in your nominations.
Following is the Week #3 BRAIN insight to share.
Brains Require All Investing Now
A BRAIN Insight to share ~ Week #3
Brain pathways are wired based on repetition. The brain adapts based on either negative or positive experiences.
Let's make this common knowledge! To share this brain fact just cut and paste or use the the share button!
- You can simply post the insight on social network sites
- You can also include the fact in organizational literature or newsletters, add to your signature on your e-mail, post on a bulletin board and implement it into what you do each week.
- Additionally each week, e-mail the BRAIN Insight to 5 people you know. Encourage each person to share it with 5 people they know. If each person shares with 5 people each week... we will finally have EVERYONE knowing this incredibly important information!
