Music and Movement: Enhancing Learning across the Curriculum
Dr. Pattye Casarow
Designed for the elementary classroom teacher. Research data support the concept that not only do steady beat, coordination, and aural and visual processing improve musical abilities, but they also enhance students‚Äô reading, language, and math competencies as well. Furthermore, these types of activities are important for the broad development of children. Multiple opportunities for successful rhythmic movement should be provided for our students. Participants of this workshop will experience numerous examples of rhythmic movement activities including singing games and moving to folk music.
