Bring Movement to Your Afterschool Program

Play-Based Learning Tools for Your School

At Math & Movement, our mission is simple: Get students active and confident in learning. Combining data, research, and decades of collective teaching experience, we have created a series of kinesthetic educational materials with that purpose in mind.  Our program is designed to engage learners mentally and physically and supplement your school’s curriculum.

After School
Program Results

On October 22, 2019, Math & Movement hosted an after-school program for 11 students at the Greater Ithaca Activities Center (GIAC). The goal was to increase student performance and understanding of skip counting and multiplication. As a bonus, students gained extra physical activity throughout the day.

The program started with a pre-test to measure students’ math skills. They then learned two active math movements – basketball and soccer – as a warm-up to learn one-to-one correspondence and skip counting.

Students then practiced skip counting by 3’s on our floor mats to solve multiplication problems. They jumped, hopped, and skipped to fill out a practice worksheet. They worked in pairs as part of a flexible grouping strategy, which improves social communication and improves student confidence.

After having fun learning threes times table, the students then took a follow-up test. Check out how much they improved!

Play-based, kinesthetic learning is an enjoyable way for students to learn new concepts. It instills confidence and reduces the stress that can be associated with learning.

Movement is like "Miracle Grow" for the Brain

Movement increases growth factors and connections between neurons in the prefrontal cortex of the brain. The prefrontal cortex is responsible for developing complex cognitive abilities like:
 
  • planning
  • thought analysis
  • creativity
  • abstract thinking
  • social behavior
