Movers and Shakers, It's all about the Music

2 Clock Hours of Early Childhood Education
Creative movement is a must in early childhood programs! Young children are not at a point developmentally to sit like good little soldiers. Instead, give them opportunities to move and dance in creative and natural ways. Rhythm, music, movement, and expression are important exercises for children to experience while in early childhood. This course will educate the participant about the benefits and importance of movement and dance as well as provide some creative movement activities written by a respected child care professional. 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Discuss developmentally appropriate dance and movement activities
  • Analyze lesson plan activities that include movement or dance
  • Explain why a preschool program may include movement and dance
