Math, Movement, and More

Students at Pell Elementary School and the Island Moving Co. have been learning and growing in leaps and bounds this week, literally as well as figuratively. Second-graders have been working with IMC dancers and teachers in a Math Into Movement residency which supports the teaching of addition and telling time. The third-graders have been exploring the theme of responsibility through such concepts as “Practice,” “Presence,” and “Equality,” in preparation for presentations on Friday, Jan. 20, for friends and family. To see the dances the students have created, visit either at 10:15-10:55 a.m. or 1:30-2:15 p.m. in the Pell cafetorium. In this photo taken last year, IMC dancer/teacher Christine Sandorfi leads Mrs. Folcarelli’s second-graders in a series of dance steps. To help celebrate the start of IMC’s 35th season, Mayor Harry Winthrop will proclaim “Island Moving Company Day” at the IMC studios on Washington Square on Sunday, Jan. 22, at 3:30 p.m. (Photo by Kim Fuller)
