I talk to a lot of parents of very “active” children who have a hard time getting their little one to sit still long enough to hold a pencil. But there are so many different ways to incorporate movement into your little one’s learning because there are so many skills to learn that can be meaningfully integrated into activities that require ACTION:
1) learning letters:
2) listening and following directions: dancing along to songs like Shari Sloane’s “Funky Chicken Boogie”
3) numbers: hopscotch!
4) shapes: shape marching
5) positional words: exercise videos! (my nieces following along with a workout video 🙂
And there are so many more! Feel free to e-mail me if you would like an idea of how you might make a new skill for your little one come alive through movement!
