Eden has been coming into my first grade class for almost three years. Movement class remains one of the highlights of the week for the first graders. The students have learned not just movement, but also about the feel and the beat of music. Furthermore, some of the most shy students have started to come out of their shell during movement class and interact in way that I have not witnessed all year. One of her activities, mirroring, where the students find a partner and mirror what that person does, teaches students improved observational skills and to work together to move through the room. Her activities build self confidence in a manner that is both interactive and entertaining for the students.
