A Workshop for Pre-school and Kindergarten Teachers and Caregivers
Songs & Music Games from Around the World
Learn active songs, quiet songs, finger plays, lullabies and singing ring games from many cultures. These are age appropriate, kid-tested materials that promote self expression, belonging, self esteem and FUN.
Ideas about the benefits of music in the child’s overall development, and the benefits that both providers and children enjoy in a music-rich program will be integrated into the presentation. Tips on maximizing children’s involvement and overcoming teachers’ blocks to singing will be included.
The format of this workshop is entirely hands-feet-and voices-on. Activities are accessible to folks with no special musical training. There will be some simple chants you can use on Monday morning. Handout of words and music will be provided for all participants.
