North Merrick School District hosted the National Math Foundation Summer Institute for teachers across Long Island. North Merrick students had the opportunity to participate for free and demonstrate their familiarity with the Math and Movement program, which adds a kinesthetic component to the district's mathematics curriculum for grades K-6.
Teachers learned about strategies and resources to strengthen students' math and reading skills while engaging them in dynamic, movement-based activities. They partnered up and played games utilizing the Math and Movement mats and tasks, such as skip counting, to meet individual student goals.
