In this energizing session for adults, Jim Gill will share examples of his work - both books and songs - that teachers and care providers can bring back to their classrooms, playrooms, and family rooms. Most importantly, Jim will discuss how his unique creations in music play inspire young children not only to move, but to regulate their movements, and not only to sing, but to make connections between the words they sing and the printed word and the world of numbers.
