Rhythm

Description

Not just for Dancing!

A body in Motion

  • Helps kids learn to move though their environment in a smooth flowing and graceful way

Assessing the skill

  • It is hard to break rhythm down into a specific body movements or pattern, it should be a part of all movement
  • It is important to offer activities in programs like dance, music play, skipping, hopscotch, etc. that work on rhythm
  • Activities should allow children to move in patterns, changing the shape of their bodies, move to a beat/music and move around each other skillfully

Developing Rhythm helps children perform many fundamental movements easier and with more confidence.
