Creative Movement in the Early Childhood Curriculum

Focus on: Preschool-Grade 3
Course Number: TEED561N

Children love to move! This participatory course demonstrates engaging strategies that can integrate movement — children’s natural language — into the early childhood curriculum in schools and other settings. Using scarves, songs, music, and children’s literature, we will explore how kinesthetic teaching techniques provide a springboard for the development of body and group awareness, spatial and numerical concepts, language and pre-reading skills. Creative movement activities can ease transitions and classroom management issues as they heighten self esteem, nurture creativity, and build community in the classroom.
