Math and Movement Using Movement to Enhance Math Ability, Increase Play-Based Learning, Overall Wellness and Creativity and Meet the NYS Standards presented by Ron Reinken

Math & Movement is a kinesthetic, multi-sensory approach to teaching math that incorporates physical exercise, stretching, cross-body movements, and yoga. The program uses visually pleasing floor mats that allow children to practice basic skills while using visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning modalities. Math & Movement leads students through researched-based and classroom-tested exercises that result in mathematical competency and confidence. The series of “math-movements” are uniquely designed to build number sense by including moving and counting with varied voice levels. The math-movements improve students’ basic math and reading skills, critical thinking and a child’s ability to focus and learn. Activities included in the workshop are aligned to specific goals in the Common Core State Standards. In this workshop, you will understand: 1. Why exercise increases learning. 2. How the Math & Movement play-based learning activities help students to learn quickly. 3. Easy-to-apply and powerful techniques for extra math practice and brain breaks. 4. How to train your students to develop their own Math & Movement exercises. 5. Math & Movement exercises including the Nines Twist and Sailboat Sway 6. Methods for documenting the effectiveness of these strategies. 7. Grant opportunities and about the National Math Foundation Please see the video of the NMF Summer Institutes.
