I've been shamelessly "selling" movement this week.
I believe movement adds joy to a music class.
I believe movement helps us relax and be more open to learning.
I believe movement helps the brain to retain knowledge and skills better.
I believe movement helps children feel greater personal connection to the learning.
I believe the brain has an easier time engaging in fine motor activity if preceded by gross motor movement activity.
I believe movement is the "play" in music class for young children.
