Movement is an integral part of our curriculum. Starting in kindergarten, we incorporate movement, singing and dancing into daily lessons and activities. These dynamic teaching tools keep the children active and engaged while also improving memory and comprehension.
As the children grow, the movement activities change accordingly: third-graders throw bean bags and balls to help memorize their times tables, fifth graders train for a Greek pentathlon while studying Ancient Greece, and eighth graders take daily bike rides while studying the physics and mechanics of bicycles.
All grades experience the movement art of Eurythmy. One of the primary artistic aims of Eurythmy is to make speech and music visible through movement. The Eurythmy curriculum closely follows the ongoing development of the child. It engenders an understanding of the laws of geometry, a sense of timing and precision, appreciation for the beauty of language and music, reverence, flexibility, and social awareness.
