Junior Kindergarten

Congratulations for a beautiful "Cinderella/Fella Ball!" The children learned many songs about friendship, love, and our time together this year. The children created "music maps" for the song "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and will be taking these home in the next few weeks as they add the finishing details. Here is a sneak peak (pictured left):


The children are exploring and learning about:

  • High and Low Sounds
  • Sol-mi songs: like "Seesaw up and down"
  • Walking orff bourdons and folk melodies like "When I was One!"


The children are exploring new textures and timbres of sound including:

  • Ocean Drum
  • Wooden Maracas
  • Cymbal Tree
  • Rain Sticks
