Enhance children's physical, social and emotional, and kinesthetic learning with movement activities while creating structure throughout your day, including greetings and goodbyes, group time, transitions, and quiet time. Accessible and adaptable for all children, including those with special needs or different learning styles, each dance-and-music pairing is irresistibly fun. An accompanying music CD is included with 42 tracks written and performed by Debbie Clement. Age Focus: 3-6.
