Therapeutic Support for Early Childhood, Volume 2

Nancy Blanning and Laurie Clark

$28.00

Another great volume from long-time Waldorf teachers and theraputic educators Nancy Blanning and Laurie Clark! Volume Two is a collection of all new songs and movement activities for young children designed to help develop healthy senses. Also included are the essays on the senses and sensory development from Volume One.

The book begins with an essay from the authors on the changes they have observed in children in recent years:

We observe that children are having difficulty finding their way into physical life in a harmonious way, into a sense of well-being. The body is not a comfortable home where they can feel relaxed and safe. A close look at these phenomena reveals that they are related to the four foundational senses of touch, life, self-movement, and balance.

Complete with nursery rhyme movement, bean bag games, seasonal suggestions, how to prepare the environment and what is happening “under the surface” with movements and activities, this book is a must-have resource for anyone working with younger children.

Movement Enrichment with a Therapeutic Approach for Early Childhood

Nancy Blanning and Laurie Clark

Spiral Bound

$23.50

What a joy! Here is an entire book filled not just with charming circle games and songs for the kindergarten, but with charming games and songs that have been created to help our young children find their way into their bodies and souls. In more prosaic language, these games and movement songs address the spatial integration and sensory processing development issues that it seems more and more children are struggling with.

However you think about it, this is a book of genius and a gift to young children. The games are delightful – teachers and parents will have as much fun as the children. And, they are brilliantly thought out to include movement forms that will bring the children into the world with strength and balance.

This is a truly essential resource of the caliber of AHE’s Resource Teacher’s Developmental Exercise Manual. Use it. Love it.
