Math & Movement at Fall Creek on Tuesday, November 29th!

After a few years away, Math & Movement returns to Fall Creek on Tuesday, November 29th, 6:30-7:30!

What: The nationally acclaimed Math & MovementTM program is a kinesthetic, multi-sensory approach to teaching math and reading that incorporates physical activity with visual stimuli created to make learning fun, active, and memorable.

The program utilizes specially designed floor mats and banners that enable students to hop, walk, crawl, or dance their way to mastering math and reading concepts.

During the Family Fun Night, parents and children will move from station to station, learning the math activities while completing a Math & Movement activity guide.

 

Why: Eight out of ten children are kinesthetic learners (learn best through movement.) The program harnesses children’s natural kinesthetic learning style to foster positive feelings towards learning.

The program is based on research that shows that moving during learning facilitates muscle memory, an important factor with younger children whose abstract thinking skills are not fully developed. Studies show this type of activity allows teachers and students to feel more energized, focused, and prepared to learn.

At a time when there are 12 million obese children, physical fitness has become a matter of national urgency. As U.S. Senator Chris Dobb has said, “All of us—parents, schools, government, employers—need to see the rising childhood obesity rates for what they are: a medical emergency.Math & Movement promotes physical activity while simultaneously increasing learning. The end result: physically fit children and increased test scores.

 

Every family recieves a free book, e-books, and lots of extras to take home!

 

This event is free and open to all grade levels and parents/guardians interested in learning fun ways to help kids at home with learning, boosting math and literacy skills, and fostering an “I CAN DO MATH!” attitude.

There is an opportunity for teachers, staff, parents, and adults to train for additional mentoring from 5:30 - 6:30 and then the event is open to all 6:30 - 7:30. If you would like to build your skills before the event at 6:30, we are looking for you! And if you would like to join this fun event with your children 6:30 - 7:30, we are also looking for you!

Please contact Teresa Mogil at tmogil10@gmail.com or Elaan Greenfield at president@fallcreekpta.org if you would like to join us!
