Active and engaged learners are the best kind – and the
research agrees! Creating an approach to learning that involves
a multitude of senses in the learning process means children
are more likely to retain what they have been taught (Fauth,
1990). Humans are universally drawn to music. We can thank your DNA for this teaching strategy that works. Music and movement offers children an opportunity to foster social, emotional, physical, cognitive and language development while having fun. A sense of community also grows when a group shares music creating social cohesiveness among classmates. Educators know every child deserves the many benefits but finding the time and knowing where to look for effective resources is not as easy as it sounds. Having the confidence to deliver the activities is often the next obstacle educators face. That is why we have created Circle Time Success - a multi-sensory approach to circle
time any early childhood teacher can utilize regardless of their
musical abilities. From weather songs to transitions to instrument play, our fun, upbeat style will keep the attention of both children and teachers. Whether a new teacher to early childhood or a veteran looking to “spice it up”, Musically Minded has created a circle time soundtrack that will move you to the head of the class.
