Music/Movement

Although it generally occurs during large group meeting, music and movement activities can occur where other types of play will not be disrupted during free choice time.  Outdoor play areas make for a very interesting music environment as well. Music  and movement activities can naturally support concepts and skills within all learning objectives across all developmental domains. 

 

The music and movement space should contain musical instruments, materials to enjoy prerecorded music, and a variety of props where children can make, listen, and/or dance to music either with a group or alone, and diverse materials that support as well as celebrate a child's multi-cultural and/or multi-lingual background.
