The Book Of Movement Exploration
Children often spontaneously dance around the living room or run from place to place. The activities in The Book of Movement Exploration bring out these strong movement impulses in children, as well as the gentler ones. While burning off a little energy, children will develop a movement vocabulary as they develop motor skills and enhance their creativity. Performed quickly or slowly, with music or without, solo or in a group, these activities make for fun, engaging educational experiences for children. (Grades PreK-2)
