Watervliet Elementary School masthead
WES to host high-energy math and reading event for families

MATH & MOVEMENT FAMILY FUN NIGHT SET FOR MARCH 15

 

Watervliet Elementary School will host its second annual Math & Movement Family Fun Night on Wednesday, March 15 beginning at 6 p.m. Students and their families will have an opportunity to play and learn together as they participate in this unique family event that combines physical activity and fun to help children learn and improve math and reading skills.

The nationally acclaimed Math & Movement™ 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. Older students, who will lead the stations, also will improve their own math skills through helping younger students.
