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



Matica's performance was raucous and good natured, alternately exciting their audience and calming them with music. The children were delighted by the vast array of exotic instruments and, without knowing it, got a terrific geography lesson. We would happily welcome Matica back to Hartford Public Library again and we encourage other libraries to have them.
