Product Description

Synopsis

Encourages children to develop their imaginations, social skills, self-expression, and coordination with a collection of 101 dance games that emphasize creativity, no-blame activities, working with a group, and more.

From the Publisher

For ages 4 and up

The body has a special language of its own. This book encourages children and adults to use that language and dance! The games here combine dance and play in ways that release a child's spontaneity and self-expression. Appropriate for parents, teachers, camp leaders, babysitters, and other caregivers, it is filled with simple games that the whole classroom or family - or just two people - can play and learn from.

All players need is a willingness to have fun and experience the joys of moving and interacting with others. These noncompetitive games reward children for their involvement, encourage them to use their imaginations, and show them how to express how they feel and think - without words. The games are organized by type: meeting and greeting games, concentration games, dances that tell stories, party dances, "muscle puzzles," dances using simple props (such as balloons, fans, or cardboard boxes), and many more.

Each dance game contains an age guideline, an estimated time of play, and suggestions for the most appropriate type of music. The games can be played by children and adults of all ages, and are flexible enough to be used by parents and teachers in a variety of settings.

Other books in the SmartFun Books series include "101 Music Games for Children" and "101 Drama Games for Children." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book has a few good games which have been useful to me. You can tell the book is a few years old some of the games could not be played now due to health and saftey laws within class.

Personaly don't think it is worth a tenner.

This is a great book for ideas for dance games. I have used the "dance sentences" and the "movement game" and the kids liked them both. The book is set out in different sections i.e use of props or imagination and has a list of games at the front of the book with an easy reference to age.

Not as clear as I would have hoped, Games don't always make sense to me and I find another book that I have more useful will still use a few of the games but not as I had hoped. I think there are a lot of good games for Younger children but I was looking for more variety.
