Music, Art, and Phy Ed are Basic.
Brandt, Karen S.
The music, art, and physical education areas can lay the groundwork for the basic skills of reading, writing, and arithmetic. For example, music instruction develops receptive, auditory, visual, emotional, and mathematical areas. Art instruction emphasizes eye-hand coordination, creativity, concentration, spatial relationships, planning, and listening skills. Finally, physical education reinforces controlled movement, balance, concentration, coordination, listening skills, and group interaction. (Author/KC)
