Feeling Strong, Feeling Free: Movement Exploration for Young Children.
Provided in this book are guidelines designed to help teachers of young children implement the movement exploration method in contrast to programmed activities for physical development. Movement exploration activities encourage the child to apply problem-solving techniques and to explore fantasies and relationships with others. The book is divided into four parts. The first part suggests various options for incorporating movement activities into the school day and provides information useful to teachers in planning movement exploration sessions. The second and third parts respectively specify information and activities for two age groups; 3 and 4-year-old children and 5-through 8-year-old children. The fourth and final part describes activities for one child and one adult working together. (MP)
