MOVEMENT, MUSIC, RHYTHM, AND LEARNING
Calling all kids 6-12
A fun, evidence-based online group for children.
This will be a live, fun and free interactive group activity. We will talk about rhythm, music, movement, and its effect on writing, learning, focus, and attention.
This online learning opportunity is for kids and their parents and any other adult supporting kids with learning. Children ages 6-12 are invited as long as they can participate in a productive way.
Children can be so much more creative than us adults. I would like to have children involved to share their ideas because all kids are creative and often have better ideas than us adults.
Kids make music
Super easy - every child can create their own beats and music.
(If you don't have an iPad to make music, I will send you ready-made beats for the activities)
Kids will learn how to create music on the iPad with 'specific' sounds, beats, and rhythms for structured motor movements and activities. The activities will be focused on ball control (ball bouncing, throwing), and other sensory and motor control activities.
Adults sign up here
(This is being postponed. Check back for more dates soon)
All times are USA CDT / UTC -5 Each session is duplicated because of high demand, if the one you want is full, please choose another date.
More dates to be added soon.
Kids and adults welcome. Each child must have a parent or educator with them in the webinar. For adults - we will take a quick look at research and evidence that shows how valuable structured movement and rhythm are for brain function and learning. This is a free online group.
