I think my favorite part of homeschooling preschool is watching them learn how to sing songs and memorize motions and actions to the songs. Preschoolers love singing and dancing. It is so much fun to do with them, and really helps build their gross motor skills and memory. Who knew that so much play could be a learning experience?

Music & Movement Ideas_pin

Sometimes, we may feel like we are missing out by not sending our preschoolers to a preschool to have that music classroom time and experiences. Thankfully, there are many local library programs that offer free music and movement classes for preschoolers. Even if you don’t have any programs near you, or have the time or ability to get out for these programs music and movement can easily be replicated at home with siblings or just with you.

If you are wanting to incorporate more music and movement into your preschool, check out all these great ideas and free resources to help get you started:
