Imaginative Movement

In this episode, the children will move their bodies to directed movement songs and imaginative movement songs.

A directed movement song gives the children instructions on how to move their bodies within the lyrics of the song.

An imaginative movement song gives the children the opportunity to interpret  the song and move their bodies creatively.

These activities help children to develop their gross and fine motor skills as well as their creativity and imagination. They also get a healthy dose of exercise in the process!
