Keep the day moving with 112 playful dance activities for children three to six years. Each provides children with opportunities to exercise, practise
and improve age-appropriate large motor skills, develop body awareness and control. Enhance children’s physical, social, emotional and kinaesthetic learning with movement activities while creating structure throughout your day, including greetings and goodbyes, group time, transitions, and quiet time. The introduction explains the importance of physical activity in children’s physical and social development and the relevance of research in regard to the brain – body connection. It gives a guide to children’s developmental capabilities, tips for effective classroom management strategies, and environmental requirements. Accessible and adaptable for all children, including those with special needs or different learning styles, each dance-and-music pairing is irresistibly fun. An accompanying music CD has 43 tracks.
