Dear Families,

I am currently taking a graduate class that connects the importance of movement and learning in small children.  There is much brain research that supports this fact and I strive to provide as many opportunities for this as possible in our classroom.  One way I do this is through music.  Some of you know that I love to sing and play the piano!  Music can be such a powerful tool for learning.  Couple that with movement like dance or other body actions and the kids are completely engaged!  Here is some research taken from my class regarding music and movement.  Come back next week for another thought and some more sneak peeks into our classroom!
