Kindermusik for the Young Child – Semester One (For Children 5-7 years old)

Kids Activity Program
Everything your child learns later in semesters 2, 3, and 4 begins with this early introduction to singing, reading, and writing music and rhythm. Through dances and games that focus on rhythmic development, we”ll learn a pre-keyboard instrument—the glockenspiel—which will be used throughout all the Young Child classes. In this well-rounded approach, children also learn the families of the orchestra, and about the composer Mozart. Your At Home Materials provide the music, instruments, stickers, and activities for a home version of the same playful activities you”ll hear about from class, so your child—and you!—can learn where you’re most comfortable: at home.

Home Materials: Children’s Folder with stickers, games bag, and Music At Home Cards, Family Songbook, Home CD of music from class, glockenspiel, mallets and canvas bag

Hello Weather, Let’s Play Together! (For Children 3-5 years old)

Kids Activity ProgramSunshine, rain, snow, thunderstorms, and more are featured in this imaginative and delightful weather-related musical adventure. Preschoolers create storm sounds with a drum to “Wild Storms,” jump in pretend puddles to “Mud Puddle Jump,” throw pretend snow-balls to “Snowballs,” and sing along to “Colours of the Rainbow.” With weather as our learning theme, preschoolers will explore musical styles that range from Opera to American folk, learn about ‘staccato’ and ‘legato’ articulation, and become more self-sufficient in a creative musical environment that integrates music, pretend play, storytelling, movement, and more.

Home Materials: Two books—Michael Finnigan and Hurry Home Little Kittens, Hello Weather Play Set, Two Home CDs with over 63 recordings of the stories, games, and weather sound effects played in class, 46-page Family Activity Book, and two instruments—ankle bells and rain shaker with scraper.

Kindermusik Connection: Listening Skills

Listening skills provide the foundation for all aspects of language and reading development. In Kindermusik, we help your child develop active listening skills that she needs for later school success. When your child starts elementary school, she will spend an estimated 50 to 75 percent of classroom time listening to the teacher, to other students, or to media. In Kindermusik, we help your child develop her listening skills. That’s why along with singing, dancing, and instrument exploration, children gather around to listen to the sounds of the bath, an elephant, cat, or other specially chosen sounds. She is learning to understand and make meaning out of the sound. In other words, she is learning how to be an active listener. (That doesn’t mean her “listening ears” won’t fall off when you ask her to pick up her toys!)

How Can I Enhance Listening at Home?

Go for a Sound Walk. Ask your child what he hears. Does he hear the geese flying overhead? What about the leaves crunching beneath his feet? Is that an ambulance or a baby crying? Point out sounds you hear and see if he can hear them, too….enjoy!
