"Almost all children respond to music. Music is an open-sesame, and if you can use it carefully and appropriately, you can reach into that child's potential for development." Dr. Clive Robbins

Open House Thank You!

For all of you who were able to come to the open house, thank you.  I think it turned out well.  The kids seemed to have enjoyed themselves.  I was happy that all of the children were able to meet at least one other classmates.  For those of you who didn't make it.  Here is what we did.
We had a craft table where the kids made Kazoos.  (thanks to all my neighbors and family who collected their toilet paper rolls!)  The children decorated their rolls with markers.  They were all very creative in their work.  Then we put a square of wax paper at the end of the roll with an elastic band.  Very easy to make and the sound is great.
We also had a cake walk.  The children walked around in a circle and when the music stopped they found a letter that was placed on the ground.  A letter was called and if they were standing on that letter they got a cupcake.
The kids had fun playing outside on the playground eating their cupcakes.
I'm way excited for preschool and I'm getting all my supplies organized and ready to go.   Please let me know if you have any questions before school starts Aug 30th for M-W class and Aug 31 for T-Th.
