(PreK-K) · 39 Rhymes and Movement Activities Set to Music
Poetry is valuable for stimulating young children's brain growth. Combine poetry with enjoyable movements, and you have an effective way to actively involve children in exploring celebrations of cultures around the world. What fun your students will have as they pretend to play musical instruments, steer a ship, look through a telescope, plant a tree, be a groundhog, fly on a broomstick, spin a dreidel, or march in a band. You can add any of the suggested small props (ribbons, small bells, maracas, miniature flags, and party hats) to the rhymes to help build large motor skills and increase the fun factor even more! An included CD with the various rhymes being sung provides appropriate background music for use in singing the rhymes and/or performing the movements.
