Mrs. Johnson uses the drum to direct students for a dance warm up.Mrs. Cropper gets students moving at the beginning of a dance session.Students have been dancing as they learn this week at East Meadows Elementary. 3rd graders used dance and movement to introduce multiplication and how it relates to addition and groupings. 4th graders learned about abstraction. They used abstracted movement to express their opinions on whether or not going to a Haunted Houses is a good idea. 5th graders danced VERBS and ADVERBS. Can you happily explode, frantically reach, or dig deep like they did? 6th graders enriched their understanding of Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics as they created and presented their own Hieroglyphic messages through stillness and motion.
