Rhythmic Kinesiological Practices for Movement-Based Learning – Anna Boiarintseva


Learning based movement is an anthropological approach to the modern educational process. Movement, communication, rhythm, organized space—that’s what our children need for effective learning.

Kinesiological rhythmic games are games for developing a sense of rhythm, attention, speech, body coordination, and eye-hand coordination, while drawing together and organizing a group of children. The simple metrization (coordination/blending/memorization/motorization) of words and movements organizes attention, causes increased interest in what is happening, strengthens imaginative thinking, trains memory, and develops a sense of rhythm. The musical ear and taste is enhanced when learning is accompanied by music. At the same time children develop the ability to move correctly and beautifully, strengthening various muscle groups. If the game or exercises are supported with simple verses or a song, it doubles the joy.
