Moving Through Math: Take One Workshop or Take Two!
Please note: These two workshops are intended to be stand-alone arts-integrated lessons focused on math. Participants are welcomed and encouraged to take both, though each can be approached independently. For educators participating in both, limited in-classroom coaching opportunities will be available.
Move math concepts off the blackboard and into students’ bodies and minds through active, experiential, arts integrated teaching. Participants discover how integrating music and movement with the teaching of math makes full use of students’ aural, kinesthetic, visual, analytical, creative, and social intelligences.
Moving Through Math: Spatial and Geometric Concepts
Recommended for Teachers of Grades 1-6
Maximum number of workshop participants: 30
In this workshop, teachers will explore the conceptual parallels between creative movement and spatial/geometric concepts in mathematics. Participants will learn about the critical relationships in bodyline and shape, 2- and 3-dimensional geometric shapes, slides, flips, rotations, and mirror reflection symmetry. Led by Kennedy Center teacher artist Marcia Daft.
