Kindergarten Readiness – Moove #8

No, that’s not a typo. It’s a play with words, because this blog is about mooving. Kids love to explore movement and need to find out all the different ways that they can coordinate their bodies. How would a moose move? Put thumbs on each side of the head, spread the fingers to be antlers and lumber around. How about a giraffe? Stretch way way up. An elephant? A bear, snake, fish, dog, cat, chicken, etc.

A few chores can be piggy-backed onto the movement exploration. How would a chicken put away the clean laundry? What parts of the body would a horse use to carry the toys out of the family room and back into the toy box? Fishes can wash the dishes. This makes working seem more like playing. Does this work for you?
