4 CD set: Move Sing Play Along and Learn
The premise of the “Move! Sing! Play Along and Learn!” CD series is that children learn best when physically and emotionally engaged. A good music therapy song is highly motivating, involves the whole brain, and provides a multi-sensory experience. Add the two together and you get one effective, dynamic, interactive learning series!
Who is it for? Listen to song samples by clicking on a little mp3 player (offered as a singular song!) 1st Graders (6 to 7-year-olds) 2nd Graders, (7 to 8-year-olds) Kindergarteners (5 to 6-year-olds) Pre-K Homeschoolers Educators Parents Students with special needs or learning disabilities
What’s included? The series is broken down into three goal areas that are crucial to language and concept/academic development. The first CD is called “Move” and it focuses on receptive language skills necessary to understand directions. The “Sing” CD is about vocal play and expressive language. The “Play” CD uses rhythm instruments, body percussion, and movement to sound in order to promote auditory discrimination and processing. “Mixing it up” gets children moving, singing, and playing. The Sampler consists of two songs from each CD, and is a good way to get to know Margie as a composer and performer.
The songs have been written, tested, and revised according to the needs of the children where Margie has worked as a music therapist for over 20 years. Teachers, therapists, specialists, parents and kids alike have found the recordings good for the ears, body, brain, and heart.
