For over 30 years, Mister Rogers has been a television friend to young children, helping them grow both "inside and out" as they learn along withi him every day. Bodies & Movement brings to you his deep understanding of children and how they grow, and features practical, hands-on activities for your classroom.

Just look inside Bodies & Movement -- there is so much to do! Children develop body awareness as they do eye exercises, play Simon Says, and create body outlines. Children develop gross motor skills as they pretend about "tightrope walking," play with balls, and dance. And, to develop fine motor skills, children practice lacing shoes, making paper-punch designs, and play "mini golf."

As a teacher, you have many ways to help children learn about their bodies and how they move. Now, with these ideas from Mister Rogers and Bodies & Movement, you will have a wonderful resource to support you in this important work.
