To children, movement is not only natural, it's essential. It is a huge part of how they take in the world around them as well as their earliest form of communication and self-expression. It is how they learn. This book provides educators with a variety of classroom and outdoor activities that integrate fine and gross motor-skill development across the early childhood curriculum (language and literacy, math, science, social studies, creative representations, and social skills). Throughout, cognitive and motor activities are presented as one, a unified approach that engages kids deeply. That extraordinary level of absorption is one of the reasons children take in information more fully and freely where movement is involved. The carefully conceived activities feel strikingly rich and spontaneous in their execution and are designed work for any classroom, regardless of physical space or number of children.
