Feel That Rhythm! Music and Emerging Math Skills
Before children are able to count to ten or add and subtract, they are developing their mathematical understanding. Songs, rhythmic chants, and small and large movement activities are enjoyable ways to holistically support young children’s emerging math skills. Active music and movement experiences include exploration of math concepts such as patterning, sequencing, representation, proportion, and opposites.
In this webinar, Early Childhood Music Specialist Ellen Acuna explored ways teachers can use music, movement, and rhythmic chants to naturally support young children’s emerging math skills in ways that are enjoyable for both children and adults. Ellen also demonstrated music activities that you can use to provide a musical foundation for future mathematical learning.
