Hearing a steady beat and keeping a steady beat develops the internal dialogue, that little voice inside your head.This inner dialogue starts around 3-5 years old by hearing/listening to human voices (talk, sing, pitch).Internal dialogue is necessary for acquiring receptive and expressive language.
These concepts aid the brain in auditory discrimination by sounding out letter sounds and words in a receptive language and discriminating words in spoken language.

About the Author
Stacey is an Action Based Learning Certified Trainer, with the first kinesthetic classroom in the nation. Her goal is to change today's classroom into one that incorporates movement to enhance learning for all students. She will make this happen by donating 10% of the profits from this book for other classrooms. Fifth-grade math and science teacher by day, she is a presenter and shares her passion for kinesthetic learning with others during the summer. Stacey was nominated for the Mark Cobb Award for Change in 2014 and was Pinckney Elementary Teacher of the Year 2013. A self-professed nerd, she loves taking college classes and has earned her Masters+30. Considering the fact Stacey was the stereotypical daydreamer in class makes this quite an accomplishment for someone who didn't think they were smart enough to be a teacher. When she is not talking about kinesthetic learning, you can find her running (slowly) or riding bikes (faster) with her husband. Her love language is quality time and there is no time better spent than with her family, eating amazing dinners with a glass of grape or two.
