During FALL 2020, your creative and independent minded 3 - 5 year old child will look forward to each opportunity to connect online with Ms Debbie and their friends through music. From the comfort of your own home, they'll be eager to engage in singing, dancing, playing instruments and participate in an amazing array of creative and interactive musical activities, with items you can find around your house (scavenger hunt style before class each week).
We'll sing hello to your child using their name and choice of movement, and they'll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions, share their creative ideas, and talk with their friends they can see online in the gallery view. Parents stay nearby to help with the technology and support their child's ability to engage with Ms Debbie and their friends online, then join in our activities during the final few minutes of class.
Our Fall themes and units include:
Wk 1-2: It's Music Day House Party - These weeks of unlimited virtual classes offer SO MUCH to engage you and your child through interactive online play with Ms. Debbie ! ALL of your FAVORITES are included during class time, as well as extra story times and dance parties. You will both love the book about what happens each day of Kindermusik, and we'll create our own adapted story of how a day with Virtual music class unfolds. At this age, these two weeks also give you access to the Mira, Royal Detective Experience and all the music without additional cost.
Week 3-7: In My Garden - Your child will be getting back into nature with a song and a dance. We'll feel like walking barefoot in the grass on a sunshiny day, as well as buzzing, sniffling, wriggling, hopping, slithering and burrowing like the insects and animals in our backyard garden. What kind of stories will your child be creating during their enhanced pretend play OUTDOORS?
Week 8-12: Feel the Music - Music is amazing in it’s ability to let us feel different
emotions. Sometimes, those feelings are
exactly what the composer wanted us to feel.
Sometimes, we come to those emotions all on our own! Let’s investigate the world of our own
emotions along with some music techniques and a wide variety of instruments,
and learn not only to hear the music, but to FEEL the Music!
Week 13-14: WINTER House Party - These weeks of unlimited virtual classes offer SO MUCH to engage you and your child through interactive online play with Ms. Debbie ! The best of our ICE and SNOW play musical activities are included during class times, as well as extra story times and dance parties.
Throughout ALL the weeks, Students are invited to follow through on interesting "homework" to continue to engage them through out the week, supported by emails and posts to our private FB group. We'll also share tips, resources, and ideas for infusing music into your daily routines, and developing rituals for relationship building.
Through these multi-sensory music activities, your child can develop a wide variety of school readiness skills, such as turn-taking, social skills, and active listening. Repetition of these activities also promotes the ongoing development of their language, social and emotional skills, early math and early literacy, physical coordination, creativity, and more. Plus, your child will learn basic music concepts, vocabulary and notation--all setting the stage for future school success and formal music lessons.
