Once the wiggles seem to be out we have story time. Story time consists of a song that has been made into a book. We have already had nine classes and have done everything from "The Star-Spangled Banner" to "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star."
We then go into working with A-B-C cards to improve our skills with manipulating the musical alphabet. Ask your student about the games fat snake, pick-a-card, and fine (pronounced fih-neh).
Finally, to support the regular classroom, we "Rock Around the Alphabet" and sing songs that emphasize whatever letter they are studying that week in class. Overall, the goal in Kindergarten is to get the basics for literacy through music the letters A-H and marching, playing instruments, counting and anything else we can do to solidify a steady beat.
Tune in at the end of October for information about upcoming music learning centers for Kindergarten.
