Christmas | Snowmen pictures, Christmas snowman, Winter fun

 

 

We've been learning a soothing fingerplay...

This can help us stay calm or bring our energy level down.

*Parents: If your child is having a "meltdown" ask them to show you this. ;)

Welcome to the New Year!

I can't wait to get back to making music with all my musicians.

We will continue to keep the steady beat, move with the music, 

learn winter fingerplays, songs and of course use our imagination.

 

"Snowflakes, Snowflakes"

(Twinkle Little Star)

Snowflakes, snowflakes all around

in thee air and on the ground.

Some are big and some are small

roll them into a snow ball

When the sun comes out to play,

watch as they all melt away.

 

"I'm a Nut"

I'm an acorn small and round

Lying on the cold, cold ground.

Everyone walks over me

That is why I'm cracked you see...

I'm a nut

(click click w/ tongue or instrument)

I'm a nut

I'm a nut

I'm a nut!

My Heart's Song: Hello October - Meet Our Rescued Kitty

 

We have been having so much fun

singing and dancing to music this past month!

 

The boys and girls will now be learning about;

Call and Response 

Some examples:

Who you gonna call?.....GHOSTBUSTERS!

To Infinity.....AND BEYOND!

Marco....Polo!

Hakuna....Matata!

 

Call and Response is great for kids to learn songs.

 

And of course we've been using our imaginations and making some witches brew and going on adventures into haunted houses and caves!

Steady Beat

The Beat is the Heart of Music!

They will keep a steady beat through

chants, movement and instrument playing.

Ask your child to show you their

Steady Heart Beat Song.

 

After we say our prayers, we take a moment to

calm down and bring our heart beat to a steady beat

by gently tapping over our heart as we sing:

 

"My heart will be blessed

with the sound of music

and I'll sing once more..."
