Preppers trying out percussion.
I am so excited to start this new school year as your child’s new music teacher. I have so many ideas and plans for your little ones during the months to follow. Preschoolers: This past month we have been focusing on the String Family of instruments. I have given the children lots of opportunities to discover hands on various string instruments by bringing them into the classroom, such as the Banjo, the Ukulele, and even the Electric Guitar. We have also explored where the origins of those instruments come from. We learn about the dances and music of Polynesia. The children were shown a video of a traditional tribal Polynesian dance and were encouraged to imitate what they were observing. Attached is a video link of our Preppers and below you can see a few PrePreppers doing just that. Enjoy! 🙂
Coming soon… 😉
This week in music we read Eric Carle’s book, I See a Song. The book explains how the narrator can hear colors and see music. When you close your eyes, what do you see or think about when you listen to music? We drew our own pictures in response to the music we heard.
We also partner danced to classical music.
