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.
Please wear comfortable attire for movement activities.
