2018 Breakout Sessions
First Things First: Covering the Basics in Preschool Music
We will look at key music concept categories and engaging activities to plug into weekly preschool music sessions…singing, listening, moving, and more. We will use the new Growing in Grace Preschool Fall Unit “Fruit of the Spirit” as a guide.
Sing in a Circle
Singing songs, playing games and exploring instruments…so much better when we do it together. Help preschoolers develop musically and socially through shared learning experiences.
I CAN Read Music!
Help preschoolers develop pre-reading music skills to put them on the path to a lifetime of music making. We’ll explore colorful, active, hands-on activities that will leave the PreK bunch (& their teachers) wanting more.
Puppets and Furry Friends – Fun With No End!
Add puppets to music for a winning combination! Story songs, singing skills and musical concepts are great fun with these furry friends; AND you don’t have to be a ventriloquist to be successful!
