I Can Help My Brain to Learn - Posters

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 10 pages | Years: 1 - 4

Display these classroom posters to remind your students of things they can do to ensure the three brains are functioning at their best.

🧠 Balance the Three Brains for Maximum Learning 

Science shows humans have three brains: 

  1. Our survival brain operates on instinct and intuition.
  2. Our emotional brain drives our feelings and desires.
  3. Our thinking brain applies logic and intellect.

If the needs of the first two aren’t met, the third won’t function at its best. That means if your students fail to meet their needs, they won’t be able to focus on their learning goals.

Display our ‘I Can Help My Brain to Learn’ posters in your classroom to remind students of 9 strategies that keep the three brains in harmony for peak academic performance! 

Each poster includes a different prompt for maintaining a healthy brain. Students will get reminders like drinking water, the importance of physical activity, and taking time to be creative, to name a few. 

Like the ‘Check Engine’ light on your car, these tips instill initiative in students to make sure their brains are operating at maximum learning potential.
