Improve Motor and Cognitive Skills
Children between ages six and ten go through a developmental process responsive to hand-clapping songs. These activities enhance children’s needs – emotional, sociological, physiological and cognitive. Feeling more alert and being in a better mood occurs. Developmental learning problems like dyslexia and dyscalculia may be reduced. Research conducted at Ben-Gurion University by Dr. Idit Sulkin is briefly described in Science Daily. It suggests music and clapping and movement be an integral part of early education.
