Jumping, jumping, see how I'm jumping
This year we started a Musikgarten class after school. It is a great time of fun and movement for the children and a wonderful enrichment to our existing music curriculum. The class is taught by Ms. Julie and you can read more about Musikgarten and Ms. Julie here.
In this picture the children are dancing to a favorite song 'See how I'm jumping'
D flapping his 'wings' to the crow song. 'Caw, Caw, Caw'
Listening to these songs at home is a great way to reinforce the music lesson, but even more importantly, it is such a fun way to spend time with your children. Singing and dancing together is a wonderful way to unwind after a long day, get the sillies out, or turn a frown upside down. Listening to Musikgarten CDs in the car has been a lifesaver for us! If you haven't already purchased one and would like to, please let Ms. Julie know.
When the saints.....
We listened to the classic 'When the Saints go Marching In'. The children loved marching to the beat. There are a few slower interludes in the song to allow for different types of movement such as swaying side to side.
Finally, we danced with scarves. Ms. Julie has lots of fun ways to play with them! We even made them into flowers, hats, and babies.
Thanks, Ms. Julie, for a fun music class!
We are an AMI accredited Montessori school growing daily in spirit & intellect!
