Kindermusik - Benefits of Movement

It has not escaped me that you have made quite an investment to involve your child in Kindermusik – an investment of money, time and energy, and I am so happy for your child that you have!
Below are some excerpts from The Out-of-Sync Child by Carol Stock Kranowitz about the importance of movement
The more opportunities baby has to move her body in different ways, the easier it will be to learn new motor skills.
The more opportunities a child has with movement, the better her brain can interpret and integrate sensation from her eyes and body. Later on, these visual-spatial skills will show when she

Can match shapes, letters, and numbers
Can pick out objects in the fore-and background

Has developed spatial awareness and an awareness of form constancy, directionality and position in space

The auditory [music and language] and vestibular [sense of balance] systems work together, and are both processed through the ear. The more opportunities a child has to process information through movement, the better he is able to differentiate sounds and discriminate sound and language.

This is just one little part of what you are doing in Kindermusik classes and activities. You have made an investment in the life of your child that pays valuable dividends, and I am very blessed and grateful that you allow me to be a part of your child’s learning experience!
