NEWPORT, R.I. — A class of second-grade students at Pell Elementary School organized themselves to form a human clock on Wednesday afternoon.
The children linked arms, skipped and jumped as some acted as the clock’s hands while others stood by the clock’s numbers, demarcated by bright red markers laid on the ground by Brooke DiFrancesco.
DiFrancesco, director of education with the Island Moving Co., is a dancer involved in the Math Into Movement curriculum. The dance company’s in-school educational program uses dance to teach math; it started in 2015.
DiFrancesco just recently took on the title of director of education after the retirement of Christine Sandorfi, but she’s been a company dancer for years and involved in the Math Into Movement program since its inception.
