S.M.A.R.T. Teachers everywhere set up their courses to maximize the important brain stimulation their students need. After many years of supporting and guiding teachers and schools with their S.M.A.R.T. programs we have come up with a S.M.A.R.T. course recipe we hope you will adopt and use!
As you can see in our recipe we want your students to creep, crawl, and roll every day. Also we want them to do balance beams and additional balance activities, as well as the Overhead Ladder and Learning Ladders each day. Having TWO spots for creeping and TWO spots for crawling in your S.M.A.R.T. course will increase the frequency, intensity, and duration of the important stimulation these activities provide. Remember, MANY of your students missed these stages AND, with repeating the activity, you don't have to TEACH so many stations!
