The Sound of Music
Children of all ages are naturally drawn to music. Infants coo at lullabies, toddlers bang on pots and pans with wooden spoons, and preschoolers sing and dance to music.
Children learn a variety of skills from musical experiences. Shaking, tapping, and beating instruments enhance fine motor development. Children listening for a beat, the sounds of different instruments, tunes, and lyrics are developing auditory discrimination.
Kids can experience the emotional effects of music by listening to and creating music that is soothing, exciting, or funny. Music promotes creative development as children experiment with new rhythms, sounds, and movements.
We are offering experiences of music through singing and instruments. During circle it is so fun to play drums and shake shakers. Best of all we have Betsy, the music teacher come to our classroom on Wednesdays and we go to her music room on Thursdays.
