39 Rhymes and Movement Activities Set to Music
By Lily Erlic
Book and CD
PreK - K
This is a resource guide for teachers in the classroom or parents of children in grades PreK-K. It is a book of poetry combined with fun movements. This is a great way for children to learn about various holidays around the world while performing actions at the same time. Each holiday, season or celebration has a special meaning and these action rhymes try to relay the importance of each occasion.
You can add any of the suggested small props (ribbons, small bells, maracas, miniature flags and party hats) to the rhymes to help build large motor skills and increase the fun factor even more!
An audio CD of all but 4 of the rhymes is included. You can have the children do the movements while the rhyme is being sung on the CD and then later they can sing along with it, too. There are also bonus themed tracks that can be used as mood-setting background music for when the children are performing the movements and/or singing the rhymes or when the motions are being performed and the words are spoken.
