In the beginning of September, we watched a “Brain Video” in class. I remember two important points from that video being: the brain will lose wiring if it’s not used early in life and also brain cells are waiting to form connections. I found this interesting, because I was unaware that we were capable of so much at a young age, and if we don’t use it, our cells that hold the capacity for some skills, fade away. As an elementary education major (I have no focus on foreign language), I think it is important to figure out how to utilize those cells in the early years. Children are capable of so much while their cells are still fresh; I believe we need to employ a strategy to make
