Neuronet learning at hebrew prep
NeuroNet is backed by empirical results, and the NeuroNet approach is backed by hundreds of peer-reviewed articles in the world's top scientific journals. NeuroNet programs help children achieve greater automaticity, or fluency, in their development of essential reading, handwriting, and math skills.

MOTOR DEVELOPMENT RESEARCH
EXERCISE AND OBESITY OR DIABETES RESEARCH
NeuroNet’s publications (e.g., blog articles, ebooks, and marketing materials) are based on scientific findings published in peer-reviewed journals.
Classroom Enrichment Program
NeuroNet facilitates Learning through Movement, an approach based on neuroscience research on the way neural networks are created and strengthened. By combining rhythmic exercise with academic drills, students achieve greater fluency, or automaticity, in essential reading, writing, math skills. The following are specific ways NeuroNet develops foundational skills outlined in Common Core State Standards
ORAL LANGUAGE AND LISTENING
Students learn to use rhythmic speech in movement multi-tasking exercises. This helps them develop fluency in speech and movement. As students engage in the rhythmic movement exercises, they must listen and respond, on-time, to alphabet and number prompts. The use of rhythmic speech in NeuroNet exercises helps students hear the sequences of phonemes in words and requires them to elongate and over-enunciate consonant and vowel sounds.
WORD RECOGNITION AND EXTENDING VOCABULARY
Students do fast picture naming and rhyming as they exercise. On-time naming is an important visual-verbal processing skill that indicates mastery of new words and their meanings.
MATH, SPATIAL, AND NUMERICAL REASONING
Students learn to count, use spatial reasoning to calculate number sets, and perform addition and subtraction. Exercises are rhythmic and require students to perform calculations on time. Fast retrieval of math facts facilitates learning higher level math (multiplication, division, algebra) in higher grade levels.
Listen, Talk and Write exercises develop the speed and accuracy of written forms, including geometric lines and shapes and letters and numbers. Starting with air writing, students use gross motor skills to write large shapes and letter forms in the air. Then they repeat the handwriting practice in their books to reinforce the names and navigation patterns of letters and numbers.
Children who perform NeuroNet exercises develop better coordinated eye movements. Eye teaming (skills controlling how we use and aim our eyes together) are essential for seeing visual detail, for tracking left/right through rows of print while reading, and for tracking up/down through lines of print while solving math problems.
MOTIVATION TO LEARN
The Classroom Enrichment Program helps children become neurologically ready to learn. NeuroNet develops the brain organization which gives children the speed and accuracy skills they need to become successful at reading, math, and handwriting.
