Movement and Learning in Elementary School
Lindt, Suzanne F.; Miller, Stacia C.
Phi Delta Kappan, v98 n7 p34-37 Apr 2017
Incorporating movement into elementary school lessons in reading, math, and other subjects can boost students' interest and academic learning while also helping them meet recommendations for daily involvement in physical activity. In a recent study, researchers found that students in classrooms where movement was integrated into regular lessons, students showed greater engagement and interest than did peers in nonmovement based classes. The article describes five strategies for incorporating movement into elementary reading and mathematics lessons.
