We continued Reading in Motion Inspired projects with kindergarten students at Lincoln Elementary and Academy Park Elementary, and added the program to Washington Elementary and Parkview Elementary.
We formed a new partnership with the Center for Math and Science Education and worked on a year long dance program with Jr High and High school students in their REFUGES program.
Additional program highlights include: A production of Hamlet at Whittier Elementary, Stop-motion animation with special education students at Escalante Elementary, and visual art (in french!) with first graders at Butler Elementary.
Reading In Motion Inspired projects continued at Lincoln and Mill Creek Elementary schools. We also added the program to Academy Park Elementary for this year.
Thanks to a generous grant from the Andrew Family Foundation, three ArtsBridge Scholars from the School of Music helped kindergarten and first grade students learn to read through the Reading In Motion program. This proven curriculum uses music and drama to strengthen reading skills. The students and teachers all love it!
Students at the Salt Lake Center for Science Education worked with Marcela Torres and Noah Harper to create and installation for Marcela’s Lil’ Gallery project on the U of U campus. By studying anatomy and installation art, they created an installation of the human heart and lungs.
