Summary
  • "Just as kids' bodies need specific nutrients for good health, they also need a balanced diet of physical activity to help them reach their potential. This book explains the learning link between the body and the brain and what early childhood educators and caregivers can do to guide it. Writing in a down-to-earth style accompanied by lively color photographs, the authors reveal the truths behind children's movement and unveil the Kinetic Scale: a visual map of the active learning needs--such as balance, coordination, and control--of infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and primary graders (from "snugglers" to "skedaddlers"). Throughout are actionable tips and activities that will keep kids moving, growing, and learning. Digital content includes parent handouts and customizable forms"--
