Sally The Swinging Snake

These songs invite children to move. The song lyrics are built around words that describe movement. Words such as slow, fast, straight, curved, tight, loose, bend, stretch, over, under and around are a fundamental part of a child's general vocabulary. Active learning is an effective way to teach this vocabulary.

In addition to enhancing the understanding of language, active participation in the learning of a movement vocabulary also provides a foundation of basic movement skills which are common to all forms of physical activity including recreational games, sports and dance.

This recording is based on Hap's MA Thesis "Songs to Enhance the Movement Vocabulary of Young Children."
