Lesson Plans for Creative Dance Connecting with Literature, Arts, and Music

By Sally Carline

Book

192 pages

Ages 4 - 12

Resource of 28 flexible, age-appropriate dances with music and options for incorporating dance in other academic areas. The lesson plans incorporate Laban movement concepts that help you teach and assess your students in dance through the use of words, rhymes and other poetry. The author studied with Dr. Joyce Boorman, a noted teacher and author on creative dance with elementary-age students. Using this book, you'll learn to:

  • teach your students about body, dynamic, spatial, and relationship awarenesshelp children warm up properly, channel their energy, and improve their footwork and rhythmic skills
  • incorporate ideas from language arts, social studies, art, music and science to facilitate children's learning
  • provide a progression of learning that creates a rich, extended experience for your students

The book is divided into 3 major parts:

  1. warm-up activities;
  2. a variety of means of exploring dance through words, rhymes, poetry, and rhythm;
  3. and ways of exploring dance through stories and music.

In the first part, there is also a review of the movement concepts with tips for assessment. In the third part, accessible music is visualized with notations so that all can follow while listening and then readily see how the story or image and the dynamic, spatial, and relationship concepts all tie together before moving on to the teaching progressions that follow. There are 4 dances with music and stories for each age group.

Through using Lesson Plans for Creative Dance, you can work on several ideas within the same lesson and continue to develop those ideas in future lessons. This lesson planner will help you take your movement education to the next level, help your students acquire skills and knowledge, and bring meaning and joy to your creative dance sessions.
