Words that Move Us: Teaching Language Arts Kinesthetically

Focus on: Grades K - 5
Course Number: TEED593N

Creative movement can bring literacy to life beyond paper and pencil. This course introduces simple movement-based learning activities for increasing reading comprehension, vocabulary, punctuation, and grammar skills. Classroom management issues, and the use of music and props will be addressed. This kinesthetic approach, designed to help children refocus and unlock their natural learning abilities, especially supports children with short attention spans or diverse learning styles. You will receive bibliographies of children’s books that are particularly adaptable to movement activities.   This course addresses the New York State Common Core Learning Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy. Dress comfortably.
