Turkey Time

We have had some great weeks learning Turkey Songs and Thankful Songs! This week we are "Turkey Caroling" around the center. The students are enjoying this very much. They will do their "Tommy The Turkey" song again. This song tells them a story about a turkey that likes to dance and "Tommy The Turkey" wants them to dance with him but they can only dance with him when he asks them too. Then Tommy will have enough and ask them to sit down till he invites them again to dance. They really liked this song last week!
We are making a cute craft of a silly turkey who is hungry and likes to eat music notes and thinks "Music Is Yummy"!

The Pre-School classrooms are still rehearsing away on their upcoming Holiday Pageant!

I look forward to a great week in music class.

I hope each of you have a great week and are looking forward to spending some time with your loved ones as we enjoy some yummy turkey and hopefully some rest!!

November 2nd - 6th

This week in music class:
We are enjoying a song called "Tip Toe" this song helps us with listening and memorization skills.
We are starting our Thanksgiving season in music class. We are talking about being thankful and how we can have Good Character if we are a thankful person. So while talking about this we are learning a thankful song to go along with it.
A funny turkey song is a must and that is what we have done. This is the 1st of many to come in the next few weeks.
Last week we started working on making beats and keeping them in rhythm with our friends, so this week we will continue to build up on that. We are use rhythm sticks this week though. They are doing a great job!

Hope you have a great week too!
