LITTLE MOVERS & LITTLE SHAKERS & LITTLE CYCLES

  • Listen to your Recording (CD or Download) pick a few songs/activities and do them with your family each night or at sometime during the day. Having the recording in the car as you drive around is wonderful. Had a parent tell me today that they keep their sticks or jingles in the car. Keeps the kids occupied.

MUSIC MAKERS 1

  • A mix up last week meant the children did not get their hand outs or home assignments. I hope you are listening to your CD/Downloads often. I encourage you to use them with some family time (the parent handbook will give you some ideas) Look over the children’s handouts and talk with them about them. Sometimes they will have assignments to do. Sing and dance together; play some of the games each week.

MUSIC MAKERS 2

  • Be sure to listen to your recording during the week as much as possible, especially the songs we have done in class. Play the games or do the motions that go with them. Read the Half Note Notation cards. Copy one or more of the patterns and bring it to class next week. Look at Page 15 in the parent handbook for more activities. Look at and show your parents/siblings your song pages. Sing each of the songs pointing to the notes. Can you sing them with solfege or by rhythms?
