Creative Movement Activities for December

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  And to make sure you have a wonderful time with your students, I’m sharing some fun creative movement activities for December music lessons.

CREATIVE MOVEMENT ACTIVITIES FOR DECEMBER

Why are creative movement activities important?  I feel that the children need to move in music class.  I also feel that most of the students WANT to move. 

And, I’ve found that offering a variety of different movement activities can help you meet the needs of all students.

Where some students love to dance, other’s love to do more of a workout type activity, and then, for me, scarves seem to please everyone.

Hopefully, you’ve subscribed to the Sing Play Create Resource Library where you’ll find tons of December/Holiday freebies!
