Abstract:
This study examines the behavior and actions of one music and movement teacher, coupled with a look at one little boy's participation and reactions. It focuses on the following questions: What music and movement activities create opportunities for social, motor, cognitive, and language development? In what ways would a child having difficulty in the classroom respond to the teacher and activities in a music and movement enrichment program? What teacher qualities make a positive impact on the child's behavior and development? The study showed that the music and movement activities promoted positive experiences for the subject. It also found that the skillfulness of the teacher was one of the most important factors in the successful music and movement program. The study led to several recommendations including the following: ECE teachers need support, education, and resources; classes should be small; and young children need to music and movement to maximize development.
