Musically Montessori:Are You Looking for Musical Activities for Movement on the Montessori "Line"?

MONTESSORI CHILDREN LOVE MARCHING, SKIPPING, AND "PROCESSING" TO MUSICAL ACCOMPANIMENT WHILE MOVING ON THE LINE! 

Scroll down to see the video!





Walking on "The Line" is a foundational aspect of the Montessori method, and we begin offering this activity to little ones from the very beginning. 

I have always been impressed with Dr. Montessori's emphasis on The Line activities and their importance for musical development in the child.

Montessori wrote:
"Introduction to Music:  The preparation of the motor organs for rhythmical gymnastic exercises may be seen in the exercise called 'walking on the line,' through which children acquire a perfect sense of balance. At the same time they learn how to control the movements  of their hands and feet." The Absorbent Mind, by Maria Montessori. 1952 p.286            


I've written other Blog articles about musical movement on "The Line" because I love this part of being in a Montessori environment. Children need to move in order to learn and music just makes us want to move!
