Children need to move to channel their energies in creative, beneficial ways and to learn habits for lifelong health and fitness. Toddlers Moving & Learning provides more than 50 developmentally appropriate activities that contribute to a well-rounded curriculum in any classroom or program.

The book contains

  • Fourteen lesson plans, each with one body parts activity, one nonlocomotor activity, one locomotor skill experience, and one activity exploring an element of movement, for a total of 56 activities
  • Extension ideas and adaptations to use with children who have special needs
  • Curriculum connections for each activity and explanations about how activities are aligned with and meet early learning standards from NAEYC and AAHPERD
  • A CD with original music to add joy and energy to the activities
