Integrating movement to physicalize kindergarten standards
The question How can movement be integrated in kindergarten curriculum in order to physicalize selected language arts and math state standard benchmarks? is investigated in this curriculum-development Capstone. The current state of movement in schools, multiple intelligences/kinesthetic intelligence, differentiation, dance education, interdisciplinary teaching, developmentally appropriate teaching, brain research, and effects of movement on learning were all explored within Chapter 2 and provided support for development of kindergarten lessons that physicalize state standard benchmarks. The curriculum section includes 12 kinesthetic-based language arts lessons and 1 math lesson that integrates dance elements in an interdisciplinary manner.
