Whole Body Math

Whole Body Math
Whole Body Math(prek -2nd grade) is an innovative math program that explores numbers and math through the physical body. Students of all grades will be encouraged to move dynamically and creatively while crossing the mid-line, exploring new movement and balance all while doing math!. Grades preK-2 will play moving math games to solidify numerical concepts. Kindergartners will focus on addition and subtraction by moving their bodies through space and in patterns. Grades 1 and 2 will learn fractions and time while moving and becoming parts of a whole. In addition, 2nd grade students will learn to measure with non standard and standard units and log their long jumps on bar graphs. Heidi uses tools she has created like fraction mats, giant dice and a movement key.
This program is part of the Hartford Performs and Arts for Learning CT rosters and schools should contact AFLCT to book the program



If there's a natural rhythm in everything, Heidi Kirchofer and Joel Melendez just may have tapped into it. Whether it's the pulsating beat of the D'jembe, the spectacular manipulation of fire, the delicate balance of a unicycle or the fluidity of capoeira, Kirchofer and Melendez convey uncanny timing and gracefulness in their performances.
