This music-filled class celebrates the unique joys of your growing child. Each week your child will love singing, dancing, and playing instruments with you and her new friends; and you’ll love helping her practice a wide variety of abilities such as gross and fine motor skills, turn-taking, social skills, and active listening. In class, we’ll also share tips and ideas for using music throughout the week. Plus, the fun (and learning!) continue with the Kindermusik@Home digital home materials, including music from class, musical activities, and each month’s story.

The Kindermusik Wiggle & Grow class includes singing and chanting, vocal play, scaffolding, exploration time, instrument play-along, pretend play, music and movement story time, listening, and movement. Each lesson has a specific focus, which is emphasized in that lesson. Examples include fast and slow, up and down, and smooth and bumpy. Each class is organized to flow comfortably with alternation of activity levels.

Our 4 week units will continue year round and as long as you are enrolled you will also be eligible for any Playdates or Special Occasion events at no additional cost! 🙂

Here are three things you can do to help your child be MORE engaged in the class activities:

·  Listen to the music at every available opportunity….play it on your phone, pad or tablet while cooking dinner; sing along with it in the car; play it on your phone at the doctor’s waiting room; give your car copy of the CD to grandma for when the kids go to stay OR, even better, if she has a computer or pad, give grandma the log in and password to your my.kindermusik.com account so she can do Kindermusik with them while they are at her house….AMAZING!

·  Read the book whenever you can….bedtime, on your smartphone at the doctors…. When you are trying to do work on the computer and your child pesters you to do something at the computer (they ALWAYS come over as soon as you sit down alone to do your emails, etc., don’t they?), promise them one read of Head and Shoulders Knees and Toes or Shoofly Pie; then hopefully they’ll leave you in peace and at least you know you did something EDUCATIONAL on the computer rather than just googled something funny or youtubed a video.

·  Make something at home to bring into class…this gives them a sense of belonging to the group. You DHM has crafts and recipes with lots of ideas for sharing!
