For young children, movement is natural and necessary. Moving children are developing children. This book helps any early childhood educator provide a classroom environment that encourages movement experiences rich in sensory, perceptual, and visual-motor experiences. Through simple strategies and activities, it seamlessly integrates fine and gross motor-skill development activities across the early childhood curriculum, incorporating therm into themes like language and literacy, math, science, social studies, creative representation, and social skills. These activities apply regardless of class size, room dimensions, or the quality or quantity of available equipment.
