Level 3: "Imagine That!" (3 - 5 Years)
Saturday @ 10:45am
*Class size limited to 4 -10 children
His blanket becomes a superhero’s cape. A cardboard box doubles as her princess castle. Pots and pans become a drum set. And she sings all the time. Sound like someone you know? Every day brings a new discovery as your preschooler slowly opens the doors of individuality and independence.
Using the power of music, Kindermusik’s Imagine That! taps into your little child’s creative spirit and boundless energy and focuses on developing his learning strengths and self-confidence so he’ll be ready for school, prepared for future music lessons…or able to leap tall buildings. Each class will include the introduction to musical concepts (i.e. Staccato, Legato, Forte, Piano, Accelerando, etc.) through pretend play, a variety of music, instrument playing, singing, storytelling, and literacy. Parents are encouraged to attend the last 15 minutes of classes.
What to Expect
Encouraging aural awareness and introducing musical concepts through:
Pretend Play. Pretend play activities are integrated with music, vocal development, storytelling, listening, movement and literacy aspects of each class. When based on a child’s real-life experiences, pretend play helps develop language, sensory, motor and cognitive skills.
Musical Variety and Singing. Activities include a mixture of musical genres and styles and provide a setting for your child to explore his many voices and to use a “singing voice.” Singing helps with memory and recall, physical development, creativity, and socialization.
Storytelling and Literacy. Each class is built on the development of a story, so you’ll hear preschoolers search for the word to say what they mean and try to keep up with their busy minds, emerging wants, needs, likes, and dislikes.
Parent Involvement. Children aged 3-5 are learning to be self-sufficient in a group setting of peers, while many times still needing the emotional security provided by a parent. He’ll experience both in Imagine That! Caregivers participate in the last 15 minutes of class. Plus the At Home Materials ensures the learning continues at home with your child’s best teacher—you!
