Music 9/2013

Hello! We have been very busy in our PreK music class. It is only the beginning of the year and yet, there is so much to do. Every class always includes lots of singing, dancing and instruments. The children and I have worked on pitch matching skills by singing simple melodic patterns and songs. Also, we have practiced steady beat with drums, body percussion and dance gestures. The curriculum for both classes is a combination of familiar songs that most children hear from everyday sources in their lives as well as songs and games that might be unfamiliar though still engaging. We have marched to the tune of The Ants Go Marching In, we have hopped around while singing Bluebird, and we have wound ourselves up in circles as we play Snail, Snail. These are some amazing children that I look forward to assisting as they grow into fantastic musicians.
