MOVEMENT, MUSIC, RHYTHM, AND LEARNING
Fun Thanksgiving activities for kids.
Great for remote learning
Step 1: MAKE A 5-FINGER TURKEY
Easy craft activity.
Kids make a paper turkey by tracing around their hands, coloring and cutting it out.
Step 2: 5-FINGER BREATHING & CALM
Then kids use the turkey they made (taped onto their hand), and they follow along with this video to do Five-finger breathing. This is a well-known strategy for relaxing and stress relief. These activities make the breathing exercises fun with a Thanksgiving theme.
These videos are a program of scaffolded, structured, movements for kids.
Each set of 10 videos will have an M (Movement) and S (Sound) complexity level.
M1 = Movement 1 - only one movement per exercise.
S1 = Sound 1 - a very simple beat to help with auditory-motor integration.
More video sets to come soon.
ADULTS (parents, teachers, educators, therapists) assist your kids to follow along with these programs.
Start at video 1, copy the movements in time to the music, and end with a deep breathing exercise at video 10. Try to do the movements in time with the beat. That helps your brain, ears, eyes, and body to work together.
Then get your learning work done and see if you can focus and work better because your body and brain are ready.
