Music and Movement
Members Attended : KG- Grade II Teachers.
Conducted by :Ms. Jainool Fatima – Coordinator.
The session started with teachers of KG- Grade II; Grade 1 and 2 team who were bubbling over with gusto because the session was about “Music and Movement”. Ms Jainool Fatima initiated the session with a fun-filled rhyme called “Farmer in the Dell”. The session made the teachers to get involved by providing each one with a character. The rhymes were recited so that each teacher actively was involved and had a chance to be a part of the session. She also explained the concept of living together through this rhyme reciting activity.
She introduced another rhyme “Hands on my head” which is a fusion of English, Math, and Science. Through this rhyme recitation teachers got to know that even through a single rhyme a teacher can edify vocabularies, life skills, numerical skills and science concepts. She also educated the teachers some miraculous techniques to design a lively class.
At last she organized a buoyant game named “A tisket a tasket”. The session bundled with such enriching activities and the teachers were able to carry the memory, awareness, vocabulary, and pronunciations. For grabbing the children’s attention during messy, chaotic time the rhyme like “Little Peter rabbit” would surely spellbind their minds and get fascinated towards the teacher’s instructions. The session was really an eye- opener for the teachers by donating a package of magnanimous ideas and strategies to induce the little sprout’s skills and abilities. Finally the session ended up with a Christmas carol – “I like to be a Christmas tree”. The session was not only by name music and movement but a complete one hour of fun filled time with good learning indeed.
Report by CIS Coordinator:
Music and movement together provide a lot many benefits to the social, mental and physical development in children. Moreover integrating music and movement in early childhood education helps young children with social interaction and language growth. Divulging children to music during early development benefits them to learn the sounds and connotations of words. Dancing to music helps children build motor skills while permitting them to exercise self-expression.
