My Favorite Things: AlphaBeat

My Favorite Things:  What I feel every Early Childhood Teacher should have in their bag of tricks!

Here is my first recommendation:

If there was one CD I would recommend for movement with young children – it would be this one.  I first found this CD in my public library in 2003.  It has been a mainstay in my teaching practice ever since.

Kate Kuper uses amazing visuals as she moves children’s bodies in delightful and fun ways.  This CD is truly creative movement and dance at its finest.

On Kate’s website you will find a companion guide and video of her teaching in action.   I have used this CD with children from three-years-old to seven-years-old.  The response is always the same – “Can we do it again?”
Promise.  It is worth its weight in gold.
