Outside My Window – What’s the weather like today? Is it raining with plenty of drip drop, splashy sounds to imitate? Or is it a cold snowy morning just right to make some pretend snow balls? We’ll move to the music, explore rhythms and patterns, categorize sounds and highlight the musical concept of crescendo and decrescendo.

In My Garden – We’ll buzz like bees, fly like butterflies, and sing like birds as we discover the hidden delights of the garden. We’ll listen, sing, move, and play instruments; learn to cooperate with partners, work together in a group and move with a parachute. Musical ideas included in this music-nature adventure are tempo, articulation, and dynamics.
