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



I call on Heidi and Joel to accomplish a tremendous task: to dissolve the barriers that exist between teens from Hartford and and teens from rural Connecticut...it's magical to see these teens that arrived on two separate buses from entirely different environments come together over a drumming session or to practice juggling...Heidi and Joel are amazing people and excellent role models for teens to look up to.
