Well we did have some dizzy fun last week at our Head Start Headquarters as we tested out our vestibular system with lots of spinning, swinging, crawling. Our Vestibular System is the one that controls our balance, equilibrium and sense of movement and is closely related to our auditory system. A well developed vestibular system provides stability, good muscle tone and helps to develop auditory language processing and visual-spatial processing.
There were a few cross eyes as the children spun on the blast off chair, zoomed down the slippery slide and sounds of delight as some mastered the monkey bars for the first time.
Catch up with us this week as we look at Visual Patterns.
