And at location  

Level 3


3 1/2 years to 5 years

 

Each week in class we combine your preschooler's natural love of music, storytelling, and imaginative play with age-appropriate activities that introduce early music concepts and foster independence, social and emotional skills, language growth, and self-control. In Level 3, the children come to class without a caregiver, however, parents and siblings will join class for the last 15 minutes.

JUNE THEME: Ahoy there, Mates! It’s time to leave the rocky shores behind and dive into a sea of pretend-play experiences. This unit’s adventures are all about water! We’ll blow bubbles in the bathtub, float down the river, and sail through smooth and choppy waters as we learn about patterns, number concepts, steady beat, and rhythm. We’ll expand our spatial awareness as we waddle to the water like penguins, swim to the surface like fish, and row, row, row our boats. A Bath Time story and water-themed songs and dances will spur our imaginations and bring the learning to life. After all, everything is more fun when you Splash!

Home kit includes a storybook and Kindermusik beach ball, plus digital music that can be streamed from any smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Home kit items match the theme of the session.

JULY THEME: We’re all natural music makers! We hum while we play and work, sing along with music in the car, and tap our fingers and feet to the beat. In this carnival-themed unit, we’ll become more comfortable with instruments and our ability to play them, and explore timbre, steady  beat, and ensemble experiences. We’ll move, play, and sing, and through sounds, store is, songs, and games, we’ll learn all about what carnivals have to offer: carousels, clowns, pretzels for sale, and so much more. So step right up – we’re off to the Carnival of Music!

Home kit includes a storybook and egg shaker, plus digital music that can be streamed from any smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Home kit items match the theme of the session.

SEPTEMBER THEME:  Some of the best learning can happen in your own back yard! In this unit, 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; we’ll learn to cooperate with partners as we roll balls to music; and we’ll learn to work within a group as we dance in a circle and move with a parachute. And while we’re exploring the great outdoors, we’ll also be exploring musical expression – using tempo, articulation, and dynamics. So get ready for a music-and-nature adventure In My Garden!

Home kit includes a storybook and stir zig zag blocks, plus digital music that can be streamed from any smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Home kit items match the theme of the session. 

OCTOBER THEME: Put on your overalls and boots because it’s time to visit the farm! We’ll waddle like ducks, moo like cows, go on a hayride, and listen to the wind blowing in the corn. As we play, sing, and dance, we’ll strengthen our fine- and gross-motor skills, develop inhibitory control, explore timbre, and so much more. Get ready to discover all there is to see, hear, and do Around the Farm!

Home kit includes a storybook and rhythm sticks, plus digital music that can be streamed from any smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Home kit items match the theme of the session. 

NOVEMBER THEME: Get ready to spruce up the house in this home-themed unit. We’ll turn tasks such as cooking, cleaning, sawing, painting, and hammering into fun, pretend-play activities that make us move more creatively and use our imaginations. At the same time, we’ll explore the relationship between sounds and symbols, and build community as we sing and play together. Whether it’s a great big house (or a den, nest, or burrow!), there’s no place like Home Sweet Home!

Home kit includes a storybook and shape shakers, plus digital music that can be streamed from any smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Home kit items match the theme of the session.
