Very nice Aug 25, 2008

Drawing upon her more than thirty years of professional experience in performing and teaching dance to young children, Connie Bergstein Dow presents "Dance, Turn, Hop, Learn!", a compendium of thirty-eight creative and fun movement lessons that will help kindergarten-aged children build their large and fine motor skills while supporting emergent skill development that includes their social skills, physical abilities, cognitive skills, and readiness for introductions to literacy, math and science within a classroom setting. Fun, effective, thoroughly 'kid friendly', and a welcome addition to preschool, early childhood, and kindergarten programs, "Dance, Turn, Hop, Learn!" highly recommended for parents, daycare workers, classroom teachers, and home schoolers.
Great focus on our youngest! Mar 10, 2007
Easy to read, step-by-step instructions for 38 lessons. The author lays it out in a very clear style. Quickly learned, easily grasped.
Good Gift for Parents Dec 15, 2006
I've given this book to a dance teacher and also to moms of preschoolers. It really sparks fun and creativity. Each class is beautifully planned and includes more options to explore. But in addition to the wonderful individual dancing classes, you are given a grasp of the whole set of skill sets around movement and body awareness and socialization that can be offered to children. This book would be perfect for home-schoolers and anyone who works with young children.
Everything a Teacher Needs to Know Oct 3, 2006
Having taught kindergarten for over 27 years I wondered if I needed to purchase this book. WOW! - Was I suprised! This book includes everything a teacher would need to know. It puts in writing the reasons for the activities, centering on the child. I look forward to using this book as a teaching tool in my classes.
