A big warm welcome back to all my Kindermusik Families and a big "HELLO and Welcome to the Family" to all me new Kindermusik Families. We have started the term with much laughter, many hugs and much excitement towards our new themes this month.
My Foundation Babies (0-1 year olds) have been cooking up a storm with our theme "Peas and Carrots". Baking, bouncing and patting cakes with Pat-a-cake and shaking their instruments while making Vegetable Soup!
My Level 1 classes (1-2 year olds) Have been moving and dancing "All around the house" meeting my two favourite puppies called Rags and Rover! Our ears have gone "flip-flop" our tails went "wig-wag" and when we walk we walk with a "zig-zag".
My Level 2 classes (2-3 year old) have been laughing and giggling during our theme "Silly all over" theme and loving our story: 5 little monkeys jumping on the bed! Oh! and let's not forget about popping, stomping and catching our bubbles!
My Level 3 classes (3-4 year olds) have visited the Carnival this week during our theme "Carnival of music" and enjoyed going on the rides, playing ball games and eating popcorn and pretzels during our pretend play activities, extending their vocabularies and imaginations!
My Level 4 classes (4-5 year olds) have loved our theme "Join the Parade" where we have learn't about Henry's Penny Whistle, the Bass and Snare Drums. We have whispered, spoken, sung and called out using our voices and danced around the room with our scarves quietly (Piano) and stomped loudly (Forte) listening to the differences in musical dynamics.
My Level 5 classes (Pre-Primary) have loved learning more about their Glockenspiels, playing Arabella Miller the little caterpillar. We are having fun with our musical notation and learning to draw Ta's, Ti-Ti's and rest signs. Reading music and clapping the various rhythms composed are a piece of cake for these young musicians!
