What is Musical Thinking?
Musical Thinking is a full-color activity book written for children ages 5-12 with printable and laminatable worksheets and activities to help children better understand the cognitive skills that their brain uses to help them learn.
In Musical Thinking: 5 Simple Steps To Teaching Children How They Think, Dr. Kenney provides the five-step method she uses in clinical practice to teach children how their executive functions work. Using activity sheets, movement, and play, Dr. Kenney helps children gain confidence in their thinking skills by showing them how to improve their attention, sequencing, memory, learning, and behavior.
Musical Thinking translates learning into musical notes with movement and rhythm to teach children how their brain works and why they need to move to learn. Tapping into their natural curiosity for understanding, Musical Thinking uses musical notes called “The Love Notes” to teach children the cognitive science behind how they learn. Introducing four musical notes and matching the notes with the cognitive processes needed for learning makes schooling meaningful for children. Adding movement, rhythm, and timing makes learning a whole brain process children no longer resist, but enjoy.
