Pinckney creates minds through movement

Pinckney Elementary School has just started to receive its new Kinesthetic learning tables. PHOTO PROVIDED

The goal has been to incorporate movement into learning at Pinckney Elementary by providing students with innovative alternatives to the traditional desks.

The equipment includes Kinesthetic learning tables that use bicycles, balance, ski swing, cross lateralization and elliptical (at their seats). While seated or standing at the Kinesthetic learning tables, the students have the ability to use movement to facilitate cognition. Research has shown that this will maximize brain function and anchor learning.

The school has received its tables, and what began as a classroom project is now catching momentum school wide.

The kinesthetic classroom is taught by Stacey Shoecraft, fifth grade teacher.
