All of the movement activities, songs, and stories for teaching math and English language arts are aligned with Common Core State Standards in grades K - 5 to help you meet those learning goals. Other activities help students learn science, social studies, and health curriculum topics. There are also ideas for movement warm-ups, breaks, and creating a strong classroom community.
Research shows that getting kids active while learning helps engage the brain. The activities in Rock It! will get your students rocking to the beat of success!
