Eye of the Storm is a collection of games for inclement weather. CIRA has made this resource available so that leaders can get children playing on the rainy, hot, humid, and snowy days. A timely resource as inclement weather appears to be occurring more and more.

We also note that it's impossible to play virtually any game without some level of mathematical skills. The pure idea of keeping track of goals and points utilizes some level of computation. However, in these games, the activities and challenges provided are specific and essential to the playing of the game itself. This means that many times, the "math work" must be done to ensure the game can be played successfully. To view the contents and some samples from this book click here.

CIRA Ontario and The Groove EDGEucation are proud to have joined forces in the creation of this Teaching Groove for Understanding resource book for teachers. It seemed like the perfect fit to incorporate The Groove’s holistic, creative, and kinesthetic approach to Dance and Movement with CIRA’s fun and engaging TGfU.
