85 Engaging Movement Activities
From Thomson Delmar Learningby Phyllis S. Weikart and Elizabeth B. Carlton
The activities in this book will keep your K-6 students jogging, hopping, swaying, rocking, marching, patting, making pathways, and moving in all kinds of ways as they learn. The experiences are planned around key curriculum concepts in movement and music as well as in academic curriculum areas such as math and reading.
And because these experiences develop students' basic timing, language abilities, vocabulary, concentration, planning skills, and capabilities for cooperative decision making and leadership, teachers will see learning effects that stretch across the curriculum. An easy-to-follow plan is given for each activity. This lively text is enhanced by many illustrations and photos.
