Movement Stories

Movement Stories for Children Ages 3-6

With Pamela Gerke
Smith & Kraus, Inc., 1996

A guide for dance teachers, early childhood educators, and anyone who wants to foster creativity in young children, this book includes ten imaginative stories that encourage children to explore basic movement concepts such as Direction, Level, Size, and Pathway. By acting out the stories as the teacher narrates, children develop physical, cognitive, social and emotional skills…while having lots of fun!

"The stories are simple, and incorporate the movements smoothly, realistically, and in a complementary fashion."
