HorsePowered Reading and Math takes the students out of a classroom setting and into the corral where reading and math skills are made visible and physical for the struggling learners. Through the interactions with horses, the students discover metaphors for reading/math skills they struggle to acquire, Children are able to break through social-emotional barriers that impair their ability to learn. Students will practice reading, comprehension, and vocabulary skills. The math skills include memorizing facts, problem solving and patterns. Each session is tailored to the needs of the individuals in the group, as they work through the issues that keep them from learning in the classroom...developing skills to  improve their motivation, confidence and critical thinking.
