Give your students a leg up in their academic career by inspiring them to get down to business in this imaginative movement-based approach to mastering foundational language skills. Under the cover of make-believe play, students will embody  skills like curves and straight lines, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, nouns, types of sentences, prepositions, figurative language, affixes, prefixes, antonyms, synonyms, categories, shades of meaning, and story details like setting, character, events, feelings, and the five senses. This playful residency is led by Bridget Palmer, Director of Santa Rosa Children’s Theater and a graduate of a 4-year Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement professional training program.

Bringing artists into your classroom, each of LBC’s new arts integration residencies leads your students through six interactive sessions that combine an art form and another academic content area to delve deeper into learning.
