"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

Home Project:  Count everything this week.  How many plates are on the table?  How many forks are in our drawer?  How many carrots do you want for lunch?  How many red cars can we count on the way to the store?  We are going to work on one number and a letter for each preschool day.  At home you can emphasis these same letters and numbers and it will help them learn them faster.  Just by pointing them out when you are driving or any numbers in the house will help them see how much we rely on numbers.
