MOVEMENT AND MUSIC: DEVELOPING ACTIVITIES FOR YOUNG CHILDREN

Taking into account the growing obesity epidemic and the expanding relationship between physical activity, music, and academic performance, this new book gives readers the knowledge and skills they need to make informed decisions to guide and motivate children toward a lifetime of movement. More than a listing of activities, this resource presents in-depth information on physical activity and music that allows the early childhood educator to match motivating physical activity and music lessons to the developmental level of the child. The guiding principles throughout the book focus on meeting individual needs, reciprocating environment and curriculum, integrating movement and music, involving family and community, and providing guidance through assessment and standards.
