Supporting Preschoolers’ Social and Emotional Development Through Music and Movement Activities
Coming up on March 12, 2019, join Music Together National for a free edWebinar.
Healthy social-emotional skills in early childhood can have a profound impact on a child’s overall development and learning. In fact, many early childhood experts see positive social skills as the most important factor for school readiness and later school success. Developmentally appropriate, participatory, group and dyad music and movement activities have special characteristics that not only support young children as they develop socially and emotionally but also support group cohesion in the classroom.
In this edWebinar, Dr. Lili M. Levinowitz will introduce participants to the important dimensions of social and emotional development and demonstrate fun and accessible songs and other music activities that support a range of social and emotional skills, including self-regulation, self-confidence, leadership, social competence, and emotional intelligence. You’ll leave this edWebinar with a deeper understanding of the ways in which music can naturally support children’s social and emotional development in the preschool years!
This presentation will be of interest to educators working with toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergartners. There will be time for questions after Dr. Levinowitz’s edWebinar.
