Description: 

In this workshop, early childhood educators will explore ways to use movement, music and rhythm to teach crucial pre-reading and early math skills. Simple African dance movements not only help develop motor coordination but also teach sequencing and positional language. Drumming teaches counting, number recognition and one-to-one correspondence. Singing African songs exposes children to the languages of other cultures and promotes community and collaboration. Inspired Child’s renowned teaching artist, Mama Sylvia, will lead participants through a combination of African dance, creative movement, music, crafts and children’s literature, incorporating auditory and kinesthetic ways of learning to achieve early childhood goals. Come prepared to sing, dance and have fun!

This course addresses the following age band(s):

  • Early childhood - early (birth-36 months)
  • Early childhood - middle (36-60 months)
