About Math & Movement
Math & Movement enables students to explore math and literacy concepts as they hop, skip, or jump! Our math concepts range from addition to place value, multiplication to fractions, and telling time to counting money. We also cover literacy, science, and languages with our floor mats.
The Math & Movement program is fully aligned to Florida State Standards, making it an easy way to incorporate movement throughout the day.
Exploratory Enrichment Program Details
In the full-day exploratory enrichment program, we begin with an energy-boosting morning assembly for students and teachers. We briefly share the benefits of including physical activity throughout the school day and why the Math & Movement “math-movements” increase learning, concentration, and brain power. We lead the assembly in some specific brain-boosting math-movements. After students have gained a general understanding, we invite individual students to come onstage and share their interests. We then develop together a math-movement and then we lead the entire assembly in this newly-developed math-movement related to their interest.
After the assembly, smaller groups of students engage in exploratory learning with the Math & Movement floor mats in another location such as the gymnasium. The floor mats are durable and last up to ten years with regular use. Students begin with a warm-up activity by jumping on the floor mats around the perimeter of the gym. Then students are divided into small groups in order to explore topics such as addition, multiplication, telling time, place value, fractions, etc. Activities included in the exploratory enrichment program are aligned with specific goals in the mathematics portion of the Florida State Learning Standards.
