Hands-on Implementation Project (HIP) Lesson Three: One way to improve reading comprehension that will surprise you

Debra Em

Ya know, sometimes there are connections between two disparate things that you’d never think would go together, like peanut butter and pickles or my favorite almond butter and crispy bacon. They just don’t seem to go together, yet, they are a delicious combo. Same for core work and reading comprehension. Let me explain by answering some commonly asked questions:

Is the relationship between core stability and reading comprehension scientifically valid?

Can core stability be improved in minutes a day?

How can we fit core work into our already jam-packed school days?

Are "typical" students in our classrooms having difficulty with core stability?

What does executive functioning (attentional shift) have to do with core posture?

Can the Pythagorean Theorem prove the correlation between core posture and reading comprehension? Finally, a use for geometry!

Included in this lesson are:

The name Core Out The Door was chosen because a) it rhymes so it's easier for your brain to remember, and b) it can be done before leaving for lunch or before students leave the classroom to go home or to after care. You can make this routine an end of the day routine so it's done every day before children head home. Remember your ABCs, Always Be Consistent. That's what wires the brain - daily, patterned, consistent routines.
