Experiences in Movement is a complete movement education resource for early childhood and physical education professionals who want to understand movement's role in the young child's life and education. It will aid them in making significant contributions to childhood learning and development. This is the only text in the early childhood market to detail why movement education is vital to the lives and education of young children and how to provide it. It thoroughly describes movement's role in the traditional domains of child development (physical, affective and cognitive), as well as in the areas of musical and creative development. The author presents an entire movement program, lesson planning, guidelines for music selection and usage, developmentally appropriate teaching methods and tried and true tips for creating and maintaining a positive learning environment with children on the move. The text goes as far as teaching how to weave movement and music throughout the day, as well as integration across the curriculum, in transitions and for outside learning enhancement. Appendices include "Appropriate Practice in Movement Programs for Children Ages Three-Five" from the National Association for Sport and Physical Education, as well as sources for ordering instruments, recordings, equipment and props.
