“Music and Movement,” a lively half-hour of songs, rhymes and rhythm for children ages 2-5, resumes at 3:30 p.m. Friday, March 4, at the Asheboro Public Library, and continues weekly.
Music helps to develop early literacy skills such as memory, patterning, vocabulary and imagination. Group physical activity paired with music can support cognitive, physical and social development.
Each Friday afternoon, children will use instruments such as shakers, rhythm sticks and bells, and movement props such as scarves, flags and bean bags, to keep the beat with a diverse selection of songs, rhymes and fingerplays, including well-known favorites and songs from around the world.
Each session will focus on various characteristics of music and movement (fast, slow, quiet, loud) and invite energetic interpretation of songs and dance.
Children’s Music and Movement is free, and children and their parents/caregivers are invited. For further information, call 318-6804.
