Main Description
Creative dance is a great way to stimulate children's minds and muscles. With more than one hundred activities and two accompanying CDs of music by Debbie Clement, One, Two, What Can I Do? makes it easy to incorporate lively movement into your day. Each activity is an enjoyable way for children to engage in physical activity and establish lifelong healthy habits, which is especially important with children's increasingly sedentary lifestyles and rising childhood obesity rates. This collection of movement activities, all reflecting common early childhood curriculum themes, enhances children's physical, social and emotional, kinesthetic, and cognitive learning during greetings, transitions, circle time, large-motor skill development, and quiet-down and good-byes. There are even ideas for dance and music presentations for families and friends. No previous dance experience is needed--each age-appropriate movement activity includes step-by-step directions, sample script to help you guide children, modifications for children with special needs, and tips to maximize learning. All you need to do is start moving!
