If You’re Learning and You Know It: Music Activities to Promote Language, Math And More!
Thursday, March 26, 20153:00 PM – 4:00 PM (Eastern Time)
Presented by Abby Connors, Early Childhood Music Educator, Author, Presenter

Children start learning through rhythm and music before birth. Throughout early childhood, they learn primarily through auditory, rather than visual, stimuli (Sloutsky, V. M., & Napolitano, A., 2003). Because young children’s minds and bodies are irresistibly drawn to music, it is a natural, developmentally appropriate way for them to increase language skills, early math awareness, social skills, physical development, creative thinking skills, and self-confidence. “Nothing activates as many areas of the brain as music,” says researcher Donald Hodges of the University of North Carolina. If there were such a thing as early learning in a box, it would be music activities.

In this fun and very practical webinar, you will learn:

  • the amazing educational and developmental benefits of music activities, all backed by current research;
  • more than twenty easy, fun activities, some using rhythm instruments such as shakers, bells, and rhythm sticks, and some using movement; and
  • teacher-tested strategies for leading music activities with your students, including the best way to introduce rhythm instruments, classroom management tips, and ways to encourage improvisation and creative thinking.

Your students will be engaged, involved and learning with these playful, fun music activities – and they’ll ask for them again and again!
