All Together Now: Bilingual Music & Movement Class
Description: When mixed ages come together, it's so much fun! What at a great way to get the family to make music and acquire Spanish together when you have siblings under 5 yrs old. Musikgarten's All Together Now series is designed to be taught to children of mixed ages from babies to infant primary. Activities are written for the core toddler age groups with adaptations for babies and extensions for preschoolers provided. This class is great for families with limited time to all come to the same class sharing time together in ways that are engaging and nurturing for children's development.
Musical Activities: Sing, tap, dance and jump with us as we sing and play together moving with the grooved rhythm sticks and other percussion instruments.
Developmental Goals: This class provides opportunities for younger children to learn more advanced language from older children and movement possibilities, social and leadership skills seeing how various ages respond.
Music & Spanish: The repertoire is based on nursery rhymes – the beloved poems and chants handed down from generation to generation and we've made it bilingual by including children's songs in Spanish! Nursery rhymes have the staying power of a lasting art form. They offer today’s children the wisdom of the ages as well as what current research and practice tell us children need: communication, movement, interaction, repetition and cultural customs – all experienced in a playful way.
Materials: You’ll receive a wonderful CD/Digital download recorded by a fine children’s choir and outstanding instrumentalists, using your parent guidebook along with an instrument that comes with the Semester materials to use at home for more fun time together.
