SUMMER SESSION: DOWN ON THE GROUND and BEACH DAYS
Wiggle and Grow is a music-filled class that celebrates the unique joys of the growing child. It features a mix of activities for parents and children that includes singing, dancing, and exploring and playing instruments. Children will get to practice their active listening, turn-taking, and social skills, as well as develop their gross- and fine-motor skills. Parents and caregivers will also get tips and ideas for using music throughout the week, taking the learning and fun home.
DOWN ON THE GROUND: Look down and get grounded! In this unit, we explore the world of creatures found at our feet. We'll engage a child's natural curiosity as we hop like bunnies, crawl like caterpillars, and move high and low like squirrels. We'll hear and imitate crickets chirping and dogs barking, perform a familiar spider fingerplay, and have fun with nonsense words too. Through songs, listening activities, and vocal and instrument play we'll deepen the sense of wonder that children have about the world.
BEACH DAYS: Grab your beach ball and put on your sunscreen- Beach Days are here! in this unit, we'll explore the sights and sounds found at the beach through songs, dances, vocal play, instruments, and listening activities. Get ready to wiggle your toes in the sand, scuttle like a crab, and listen to the surf rolling in. Just like a day at the beach, this unit is full of sun, fun, and play!
DIGITAL HOME MATERIALS: This unit include DIGITAL HOME MATERIALS. Students will receive downloadable music, books, and activities to do at home with their child.
For preschoolers and students who will be entering K for fall.
NOTE: This class is listed on the schedule as ages 3-5. 3s are welcome in the class, however it works best for a little bit older students ages 3 and a half or more. It is a drop off class without the parent. If your child has not yet turned 3 they may not enroll in this class even if they will be 3 for fall. If you have a young 3 please consider the Wiggle and Grow class above for parent and child together. We have an "older toddler" class scheduled for older 2s and 3s only.
Kindermusik Adventures ON THE ROAD!
