Movement Songs Children Love

Themes & Variations

SKU: 312

With young children, movement is an essential part of making music.  The 10 songs in this collection are Denise's favourite songs to engage and captivate primary school students in active music-making. These songs are the finest written by a talented group of children’s performers and teachers.  Why are they so appealing? The songs have clever lyrics and goofy sound effects.  While movements are suggested for all the songs, there is a lot of room for creativity by the children who perform them. Children love the challenge of remembering the movements while singing and they are fun to perform!
