Energize your classroom! Here's a fun way for young children to combine their favorite "props" with fine and gross motor activities, reinforce school readiness skills, and sharpen physical development. Throwing and catching bean bags and scarves are child-friendly ways to prepare children for future literacy skills. Rhythm instruments help to stimulate a sense of musical tempos and beats to reinforce math skills. These three props are especially appealing to young children, motivating and encouraging them to stay engaged.
