Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Creative dance is a great way to stimulate childrens 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 childrens increasingly sedentary lifestyles and rising childhood obesity rates.

This collection of movement activities, all reflecting common early childhood curriculum themes, enhances childrens 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!

Book News Annotation:

Dow, who performs and teaches dance to young children and adults, presents 109 activities and two CDs of vocal and instrumental music to help teachers incorporate movement and physical activity into early childhood curriculum. Each has step-by-step instructions (including scripts) for choosing music, presenting the activity, and closing the session, in addition to advice for managing a group of children and ensuring their safety, modifications for students with special needs, and ways to maximize learning opportunities. They relate to starting the day; circle games; transition times; language and literacy, numbers, shapes, patterns, science, and social studies; large-motor skills for large spaces; relaxing and ending the day; and individual movement.
