When we imagine happy young children, we picture exuberant and unbridled movement. Not only is movement natural, it is also necessary for optimal physical cognitive, emotional, and social development. Moving children are developing children. With Move to learn it is easy to turn your classroom into an environment that encourages movement activities rich in sensory, perceptual and visual-motor experiences. Through simple strategies, Move to team seamlessly integrates fine and gross motor-skill development across the early childhood curriculum: Language and Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Creative Representation, Social Skills With most activities listed in order of difficulty, choosing the right one for your class is easy!
