Children are naturally drawn to imitating animals. Immersing themselves in the animal world through movement and sound is a rich source of exploration and discovery. When we pretend to be friendly, sun-loving spiders, your child can experience the world of the spider in a way that feels safe and fun. Exploring the movement of spiders and observing and imitating the movement of others in the class helps to expand your child’s movement vocabulary. He/she’ll find new ways to move, as well as the language to label those movements.
