Moving & Learning Families Program
Increase Parent Engagement and
Encourage Virtual Learners
The Moving & Learning Families Program will equip local students (at the 2nd-5th grade levels) and their parents/guardians with movement-based learning strategies, materials, and virtual (synchronous and asynchronous) training to physically, mentally, and emotionally re-engage them in mathematics while learning at home during the pandemic. This program is sponsored by the National Math Foundation.
The Moving & Learning Families Program
The Moving & Learning Families Program provides families with their own floor mats to use for at-home learning. Weekly virtual sessions will be held for parents to ask questions and learn strategies to guide students at home. Students learning from home will also have synchronous or asynchronous sessions to assist with their learning.
Each family will receive a Math & Movement floor mat to use at home. Students will receive workbooks for their grade level. We will work together to determine the best materials based on your student needs.
Parent/guardians and their students will attend a live session with Math & Movement founder, Suzy Koontz. Suzy will go over instructions on how to use the floor mat and other movement-based techniques.
Parents/guardians with meet virtually with Suzy once a week during the program. These Q&A sessions allow families to learn more strategies and ask questions to help them throughout the week.
Students will have synchronous or asynchronous sessions that will help them work through the problems in their workbooks. These sessions will help students who are learning virtually stay engaged and active!
Why is this
It is important to remind parents/guardians and their children of their strength and resilience during this global pandemic. We want students to feel successful when practicing essential skills, like multiplication! This program allows families to learn and grow together. It will also build confidence in math skills, making the eventual transition back to the classroom much less stressful for parents, teachers, and students.
