Music Class News
We kick off the month with songs about winter, ice skating, and snowball fun; bringing joy to our music classroom.
Then, we’ll get ready for a playful set of train songs and activities! We’ll navigate our classroom train track and then capture the excitement of the children singing, “Choo, Choo the Big Train,” while recording the children's voices.
Mid-month, the Little Schoolers will sing their hearts out with adorable songs to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
February wraps up with songs echoing fire safety awareness and discovering safety signs around our community. Then, we end with a musical exploration into the world of jazz music. We will be singing along to jazz style children’s classics like, “Old McDonald” and the "ABC song."
Remember: Those who wish to sing, always find a song!
Happy Valentine's Day!
Ms. Laura, Ms. Sheri, and Ms. Jana
Please take a moment to look over the sick policy. If you need to give your child cold medicine or stomach medicine before they come to school, they are not well enough to come to school. In addition, if your child has a runny nose that could get all over their clothes or classroom materials, please keep them home. We need to keep our staff and students healthy. If we have an outbreak of illness in a classroom, we have to close the classroom, and we do not want to do that.
