FOL Fridays: Movement and Body Control

During movement activities, children learn to organize the available space in relation to themselves and in relationship to objects and other individuals… this is how they develop body control, spatial awareness, and confidence in the power and ability of their own bodies.  (Linda Carol Edwards, The Creative Arts)

TIP:  Turn on some dancing music and dance around the room together.  Add a prop like a scarf, a ball, or a hoop for more movement and body control fun and learning.
