Two fun themes, one great Kindermusik class for toddlers....
--->THEME #1: Up in the Sky
Ready for a flight of fancy? It’s time to explore all of the floating, flying, fluttering things we can find Up in the Sky. We’ll use our imaginations to fly kites, stretch like clouds, and dance like stars. We’ll hop and fly with a flock of robins, soar with a wise old owl, and see the silver moon boat sail across the sky. Fire up your imagination, because we mean it when we say…the sky’s the limit!
--->THEME #2: Time For Lunch
Rumble, grumble…listen to those hungry bellies. It must be Time for Lunch! This delicious unit uses fun songs, rhymes, stories, vocal play, instrument play, and focused listening activities to explore the theme of food, food, food. So get your musical appetite ready!
