Why Young Kids Learn Through Movement


One of our most popular trainings presented by David Kisor is our training titled “Building Social and Emotional Awareness Through Music and Movement”. This is why we were thrilled to read this recent article published by TheAtlantic.com website written by Lara N. Dotson-Renta. The author makes many points relative to the same things GROWING SOUND strives to achieve through our songs. A few examples of this include:
1) …experiential learning, in which children acquire knowledge by doing and via reflection on their experiences, is full of movement, imagination, and self-directed play.
2) Memory and movement are linked, and the body is a tool of learning, not a roadblock to or a detour away from it.
3)The role of play has been established not just as a part of learning, but as a foundation for healthy social and emotional function.

And there’s so much more!!! Read the full articlehere.
