Thinking on your Feet
200+ Lesson Plans by Jean Moize
Brain research supports the link of movement to learning. Experts are saying that physical activity boosts brain function. Thinking on Your Feet has over 200 lesson plans using kinesthetic teaching strategies to teach academic concepts in reading, writing, math, social studies, and science. The lessons are organized according to Gardner's Multiple Intelligences, basic brain concepts, and national standards in each of the major subject areas. The advocacy information included supports the need for daily quality physical education in our schools. Brain research information and brain game activities give the teacher the basis of how to put learning into action in the gymnasium or classroom with students thinking on their feet!

Movement that Counts byJean Moize
Action Based Learning Lessons for Elementary Math
Research shows us the strong link between movement and math achievement
+ Ability to focus for longer periods of time on difficult math problems (CDC)
+ Increased confidence & lower test taking anxiety (CDC)
By understanding the link between movement and math, ABL is able to apply this research to the classroom to provide student's an advantage in math. These are simple, proven methods delivered in a 1 page format for the educator to easily implement and help students anchor math concepts.
Each lesson uses purposeful movement layered with mathematics to ..
+ To reinforce math concepts & anchor learning in the classroom
+ To prepare the brain for learning new math concepts
+ To prepare the brain for testing
The lessons are designed to be paired with existing curriculum standards, and cover the following math concepts:
