A Kinesthetic, Multi-Sensory Program That Has Students and Teachers Active During Math and Reading Class.
Math & Movement is a kinesthetic, multi-sensory approach to teaching math and literacy. It incorporates physical exercise, stretching, cross-body movements, yoga and visually pleasing floor mats designed to encourage students to practice concepts. Our program allows students to physically hop, walk, crawl, dance or touch the mats and banners as they learn. As a result, students use more learning modalities (visual, auditory, motor, and kinesthetic) when practicing.
Math & Movement begins at pre-K, harnessing a child’s natural love of movement and creative imagination to master basic math concepts. The floor mats and banners cover concepts including subtraction, telling time, factoring, cartesian coordinates, money and many others.
The movements in our program help students master concepts. At the same time, our programs offer teachers and students an overall sense of well-being. Incorporating these exercises during the day, before testing, or during transitions, allows teachers and students to feel energized, focused, calm, and ready to learn.
