Author, Emilie Buchwald, said, “Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.” A child’s ability to retain what he has read can be enhanced when the reading is done in conjunction with physical activity. Participants will engage in activities used to teach physical skills while integrating early childhood classroom content areas like numbers, letters, colors, shapes, or sounds. Join us as we explore the love of reading with the joy of physical activity.
