Full Description/Meeting Details:
The training will be held on Thursday, February 3, 2022, from 8:15 am-2:45 pm. Registration will occur from 7:45-8:15 am.
This face-to-face training is intended for teachers and paras who have NOT previously attended BRAINball curriculum training.
Teachers must request Temporary Duty Leave via myocps.net and schedule a substitute teacher according to school procedures. Please add this verbiage to the substitute teacher request: "Grant funding will be used to REIMBURSE substitute teacher costs for physical education teachers and paraprofessionals who teach at traditional OCPS schools."
BRAINball™ is an innovative and unique physical education learning system that merges physical activity and academic learning through play. Instructors will learn to use 100 mini balls to utilize BRAINball's collection of 100 lesson plans to develop math, reading, grammar, spelling, anatomy, and foreign language skills. In addition to the physical benefits, significant improvement will be seen in gross and fine motor skills, cooperative and cognitive learning. BRAINball™ can be incorporated into adapted physical education programs as well as those teaching students with learning disabilities, such as dyslexia.
All schools represented will receive one set of BRAINball equipment valued at ~$800.
A box lunch will be provided or you can bring lunch with you. Dress to participate!
