April 26, 2015: Music

Hello PreK! I cannot believe that we are almost in May! The children are growing up so fast and working very hard. Lately, imaginative play has been a big part of our scarf time. The students have been creating their own personal pet out of the scarves as well as pretending the scarves are seeds that we plant, water and watch grow. Other forms of imaginative play have included pretending to be little caterpillars while we sing the song, "Tiny Caterpillar." From this song, we move into instruments and practice playing only on certain words. "The More We Get Together," and "Everyone Put Your Hands Up," are both really fun movement songs where the children get to pick different ways to move their bodies and add to the silliness of the lyrics. "The Grand O'l Duke of York," and "5 Little Speckled Frogs," are some other examples of silly songs that we have been incorporating into our daily fun.
