A Day in the Forest
by Mary Knysh
This CD is an exciting contemporary composition created by Mary and Cliohna Ni Aodain to promote and inspire active learning and creative movement as a means
for storytelling in early childhood and primary classrooms. There are two musical story versions on the CD, one with a story narration and the other music only so that
children engage in using their own imaginations to create the movement story. The music features five movements; daybreak, morning, storm, rainbow and nightfall.
This is a fantastic way to get young students into creative movement and storytelling at the same time! MKADF
