Summary

Experiences in Movement take the reader down the path of creating a movement-oriented learning setting for children aged birth to eight years. In addition to presenting a complete movement program that can be implimented immediately, the author also presents techniques for weaving movement and music throughout the day, as well as across the curriculum, for teachers who look to this book as a resource. Resources and appendices offer topic-specific Web sites and sources for ordering music, intruments, equipment and props.
