Academic BeatsPublished by angela.killian on Thu, 02/23/2012 - 16:54
I would like to thank Mrs. Jodi McKee. Jodi teaches mathematics, social studies, and science in the fourth grade. She has recently written a grant to the Nebo Foundation and received $600.00 to purchase balance balls and drum sticks. These hands-on materials allow teachers to combine physical education activities with the mathematics core standards. The program is called Academic Beats. Teachers are reinforcing mathematics through rhythm and movement and it is a fun instructional approach that produces results. This program is based on the philosophy that students learn by doing. Thank you Mrs. McKee, for helping us to become better mathematics teachers!
