Dance and Movement

Article by: Melanie Fillmore

At Sierra Bonita we are learning how Dance and movement can help us learn everyday subjects like Math, Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts.  Here are some things our 3rd-6th grade students have been dancing about this week.3rd grade was introduced to REPEATED ADDITION through observing dances of others and mathing out their movements.4th grade took it a step further and used dance and movement to see MULTIPLICATION in action.  5th grade will be dancing about different forms of TEXT STRUCTURE.  6th grade created dancing Egyptian Hieroglyphs to share a message about Ancient Egypt.  Who knew dance could do all those things?!
