Hey Kids… Get out of your seat and LEARN ON YOUR FEET!
Research shows students grasp concepts and remember more when they get out of their seats and move through a lesson. Yet many students and teachers still sit behind heavy desks, increasingly weighed down by the latest state standards. If only teachers had a practical resource for teaching mandated curriculum in a dynamic way that involves all their students and creates a joyous, inclusive classroom environment, while at the same time nailing those state standards.
Now they do. Learning on Their Feet: a Sourcebook for Kinesthetic Learning Across the Curriculum K-8 is the first comprehensive resource on teaching body-based learning in four curriculum areas: Social Studies, Science, Math and Language Arts. As user-friendly as it is all encompassing, this dynamic sourcebook will give teachers K-8 a slew of practical lessons to lead their students out of their seats and into their smart bodies of knowledge.
