Whole Body Math: Kinesthetic and Sensory Engagement in Early Childhood Mathematics
PRESENTERS: Yvonne Liu-Constant (Early Childhood Education Faculty) and teachers in the Mathful Play
This interactive workshop focuses on the implementation of Whole Body Math strategies in preschool to second
grade classrooms. Much of math learning, even with hands-on manipulatives or interactive computer programs,
is limited to fine motor engagement and heavily reliant on English language abilities. Whole Body Math creates
equity for students who thrive in learning through kinesthetic and sensory engagement. Participants will learn
how to use guiding questions to modify lessons and design activities, gain direct experience with Whole Body
Math, and leave with strategies to integrate Mathful Play into their own classrooms.
All sessions will take place in the University Hall Amphitheater, Lesley University Porter
Square Campus, 1815 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138
