Movement activities for young children help to enrich and develop motor skills, cognitive skills, and social skills by improving blood and oxygen flow—which aids in cerebral development and brain function. Gryphon House Publishing’s activities focus on keeping children of all ages engaged and active in order to continually explore their world, and learn to fully express themselves by showcasing their unique personalities.

Children love to explore the world using their five senses. Young children especially learn by listening to music, holding things, looking at them, and, yes, tasting them! In the classroom, the five senses can be used as a pathway to learning new concepts. By introducing sensory elements to students, they can be more engaged.Science
Art and children go hand in hand. Young children are always full of creative ideas, and art provides a way for them to express themselves and make what they imagine concrete. The creativity brought out by art also builds abstract thinking skills that help with problem solving, spatial reasoning, scientific inquiry, and a host of other important topics.Art
