Children with sensory processing disorder struggle to process sensory input from the world around them and, as a result, their basic motor skills are often impacted. Sing, Move, Learn
is a fun way for kids to get moving and do exercises that develop their fine-motor skills and regulate their sensory system. This lively CD features 25 songs that accompany the themed lesson plans in Jenny's first book, Learn to Move, Move to Learn
. The songs combine familiar tunes with new lyrics and feature a wide variety of musical instruments and tempos, making this an ideal tool for targeting a child's sensory needs. Sing, Move, Learn
is the perfect accompaniment to the Learn to Move, Move to Learn book, and also stands as a great teaching tool on its own. This is a must-have for parents, educators and therapists!
