The Kennedy Center’s Arts Edge cites, “While the concept of arts integration is not new, there is an increased interest and a growing number of programs and schools focusing on arts integration. Why are educators showing this interest? There are two predominant reasons:
1. Arts integration practices are aligned with how students learn. 2. Arts integration energizes teachers by providing increased professional satisfaction.”
It is my joy to offer K-6th grade integrated lessons in Mathematics, Social Studies, Language Arts, and Science that correspond to the ODE Academic Content Standards through DANCE.
The schools that participated in the Moving to Math program have shown an increased level of proficiency in Mathematics since its design in 2009. Portage Collaborative Montessori School, in fact, reaching the level of Excellence with Distinction within the first year of offering the course. In the 2011-2012 school year Moving to Math students showed an increased fitness level as well.
Learning through movement will bring a captivating motivation to your classrooms this year. This will benefits your students and teachers academically and physically.
Download and print Kimberly’s information page. Lessons can be custom designed to meet any ODE Academic Content Standard. Cost is negotiable. One classroom teacher can make this happen. Thank you for your consideration!
Hoping to see you in 2012-2013,
