Moving with Math (Session 2): Total Physical Response


This workshop explores the concept of Total Physical Response (TPR) and its practical use in teaching new vocabulary to Pre-K/K students. By intentionally blending movement with language, Laura Schandelmeier will reveal how TPR supports improved effectiveness in learning, memory retention, and recall. Throughout this session, educators will also encounter child-directed methods that adeptly convey problem-solving abilities, counting strategies, pattern recognition, and various other skills.
