Math & Movement is appropriate for kindergarten through third grade. In later grades, children benefit from the addition of Math & Movement to physical education classes and the use of Math & Movement warm-up exercises at the beginning of math classes.

Children love to move—and they need to move. Too much sitting results in decreased circulation and a subsequent decrease in concentration, while certain kinds of movement stimulate the release of dopamine and noradrenaline in the brain, which are important in learning.

Math & Movement harnesses a child’s natural inclination for activity and turns it into enthusiasm for acquiring number concept skills. Thus, Math & Movement motivates students while simultaneously strengthening their math skills.

We recommend Brain-Based Learning and Enriching the Brain by Eric Jensen; Smart Moves by Carla Hannaford and What’s Math Got to Do With It? by Jo Boaler.
