Bam! Radio Online for Educators


BAM! is an acronym for "body and mind" and BAM! Radio was conceived in 2007 on the premise that the key to success in life for children and youth is nurturing a healthy mind in a healthy body.
Developed by early childhood professionals, BAM! Radio started out as a single online radio program called Body Mind and Child. It was created to bring parents the latest insights and wisdom from the leading experts in the fields of early childhood education, physical education/motor development, play research, child development, and the neurosciences.
The end of a long school day can be tough for students as well as teachers.  Here are a few segments I have been privileged to participate in.

In this segment, our guests offer their best ideas for closing out the last few minutes of the day.

Quiet, calm minds learn better. Unfortunately, students are increasingly stressed about life inside and outside of class. In this segment our guests offer strategies to help students stress less.
