MOVEMENT, MUSIC, RHYTHM, AND LEARNING
A webinar about rhythm, music, movement and their effect on writing, learning, focus, and attention.
The research is clear.
Music activates the brain like no other modality. Rhythm can help with learning. Put movement, music, and rhythm together in a structured plan, and you have powerful strategies to impact learning, motivation, and achievement.
In this webinar, we will take a look at the research. We will investigate how children can participate in this program with the specific goals of improving their focus, learning and overall achievement. Using data collection and evaluation of skills is part of this approach so that you can determine the outcomes and benefits of various movement and music activities. You will learn about a structured, scaffolded approach to providing your child with fun and motivating activities. Practical and concrete examples will be shown as a basis, but your kids will probably come up with many other ideas. This webinar will provide the concepts. I'm so excited to see what your kids come up with to add to these initial ideas.
Kids create their own music
Super easy - every child can create their own beats and music.
Learn how you and/or your children can create music on iPad or Android tablet. This will be music 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.
