Dual Language Learning Institute Webcast Part 2: Physical Well-being and Motor Development

The first concept for school readiness is physical well-being and motor development. This webcast helps Head Start teachers, assistants, and directors better understand how culture influences parental approaches to discipline, feeding, sleeping, toilet training, and other behaviors critical to a child's physical development. Carol Bellamy, a Head Start fellow, teacher, and manager suggests using music and dance to increase  physical coordination, bridge cultural understanding, and foster the child’s self-concept.
