VIdeos that actually clam and focus students in the classroom

Some excerpts from the article:

  • MeMoves is a program created by Roberta Schref that uses music, images and movement to create a spa-like environment

  • Originally intended as a program specifically for autistic and special-needs children

  • Therapists have found MeMoves to be effective in mainstream classrooms as well.

  • "It’s a short, sweet little thing that seems to help the kids focus in and be more receptive and stay focused on whatever they are supposed to be learning a little bit longer."

  • "It’s about putting the nervous system in a calm but alert state,"

  • A developmental kindergarten teacher at Upland Terrace Elementary uses the DVD several times a week as a way to refocus her students
