At NCCTM today, I attended a session based on integrating the arts into the math classroom. I was so impressed with the presenting dance teacher’s express understanding of the math Common Core State Standards. She specifically designs lessons that help her students reinforce what they are learning and she used the phrase “visually, cognitively, and kinesthetically.” What if we approached every lesson this way?!
Here are some resources on integrated the arts into the regular classroom. Many of our students would benefit academically from our efforts to include elements like these in our teaching. I know we’d all have a lot more fun!
Music and Arts Integration Lessons – super easy, accessible and ready to go
Arts Edge – an exceptional, searchable resource from the Kennedy Center for the Arts
Math, Art, Fun – What more needs to be said?
