Promoting Language and Literacy through Movement
Movement isn’t just important for physical development, but also language and literacy. It lengthens attention span, supports social interaction, and increases imaginative problem-solving, and enhances self-confidence.
Get ready to move and learn as we examine how preschoolers refine their communication skills during play. When they describe and explain, they use more and more complex vocabulary and sentence structure. These verbal skills provide a foundation of grammar, vocabulary, and story comprehension that will help later as they learn to read.
