1st Edition Danceland CD: Fun Songs and Activities to Improve Sensory Skills
Author(s): Kristen Fitz Taylor, Cheryl McDonald
Danceland is a musical invitation to move joyfully and creatively!
Offering safe and surgent fun for kids of all abilities, you'll be surprised and delighted by all the sensory-motor activities hidden in Danceland. The music invites participation and engages children in rhythmic expression, which is fundamental to physical, cognitive, and emotional development. Designed by physical and occupational therapists, over 75 movement activities can be adapted for physical education and home programming.
The "travel guide" combines theory with instruction, while encouraging you to put your own creative twists on the activities. Turn dances into games, choreographed stories, or theatrical performances! Polka to an authentic Krakowiak, or have kids choreograph their own movements to singer Lora Dart's Native American song "Touch the Earth." Kids can croon karaoke-style to an uproarious re-make of the 60s hit "Wild Thing," or have a Kwanzaa party to "Wisdom of Africa." The possibilities are endless!
