"This year our DACTM K-6
Dinner Conference was attended by nearly one hundred current and future
teachers. Attendees began the evening by selecting one of six work sessions.
This was followed by a very nice dinner. The keynote session that followed
dinner was an exciting energy lift for everyone after a long day of
Marcey Walsh burst upon the room with contagious
energy. Marceys actions and explanations offered an interesting
look at why students should not be asked to sit perfectly still when
they are thinking and solving math problems. She talked about, and demonstrated,
a wide variety of kinetic actions that can help students think and be
creative while they are exploring problems. She had us out of our seats
and participating in problem solving. It was fun and thought provoking.
Bill Gates is known to rock back-and-forth
when in he is thinking deeply about a problem. Imagine if a teacher
had told Bill to sit still! Marceys Move Em or Lose
Em! keynote was a demonstration of how kinesthetic activities
can help students learn and problem solve" . Dick Sietz, DACTM
