AIM 4 PIE : Academics in Motion for Physical Intensity Everyday
The patented AIM 4 PIE Game Kits are the perfect balance of academics, physical activity, and collaboration. A simple idea with a powerful impact: letters rolling on a ball. Students must work together and physically move to find letters to build words. It is a reading manipulative that engages large muscle groups while students are totally focused on the academic task.
Could the answer to this balance be easy? Easy as PIE?
Benefits of AIM 4 PIE
Students use lots of high energy locomotor skills, running, skipping, leaping etc, to find assigned letters and in the span of a few seconds use fine motor skills to place the ball on the word building tray. Correct throwing form and proper basketball shooting technique may be practiced as students must throw balls into the unique mixer goal.
Beginning readers get extra practice in letter recognition, spelling high frequency sight words and word building. Established readers use subject specific task cards to reinforce classroom concepts in areas of English, science, nutrition, health, etc. The math concept of fractions is utlilized as “just keeping score in a game.”
Students work in teams and every team member has a role to play. Each team has a captain, a point guard and several letter “ninjas”. Teams compete for points by spelling words quickly and must work together. The elements of cooperation and competition are extremely effective in keeping students motivated and on task.
