NEW! For the WHOLE FAMILY… A family-style version of WIGGLE & GROW
For BABIES newborn to 1.5 yrs… ZOOM BUGGY and DREAM PILLOW
How many ways can you and your Baby ZOOM? Hop in the ZOOM BUGGY and find out! Get ready to experience the rumbling of a baby buggy, the squeaky stroller, the bumpa bumpa bumpa of the wagon, the train chugging up the track, and much more.
Your child is the star in DREAM PILLOW, with each activity carefully planned to stimulate his developing brain, thereby promoting physical, social, cognitive, emotional, and language development. But it is the parent who is watching and guiding this little star on the rise, and Dream Pillow, like all Village units, is written with the parent very much in mind.
Home Materials with each unit: A literature book, baby-safe instrument, Home CD, and Art Banners
Home Materials: Literature books, stir xylophone, Home CDs, Home Activity Book, and Carry Bag
Cloudy with a chance of musical fun! It’s time to turn your attention to the sky as you pretend to jump in mud puddles, make a musical storm, sled in snow, slide around in the wind, and whistle with Mr. Sun. Children will be surrounded in a creative musical environment that integrates music, pretend play, story telling, movement, and more. Children will explore a variety of musical concepts, like fast and slow and loud and soft. Adding to the thrill are at home projects such as making wind chimes, rain hats, sleigh bells and snow boots!
Home Materials: Literature books, ankle bells and rain shaker, Home CDs, Home Activity Book, Story Play Cubes, and a Backpack (free for all first-time IT students!)
For BIG KIDS to 7 yrs… YOUNG CHILD SEMESTER 1 or SEMESTER 2
Semester 1: Is your child ready to read and write music? We’ll get you there with age-appropriate dances and games. And a keyboard instrument – the glockenspiel – which will be used throughout all the Young Child classes to get ready for piano lessons. Themes include “Music is Everywhere”, “Meet the Mallets”, and “Discovering Melody and Mozart.”
Semester 2: Your child will continue to build on skills introduced in Semester 1 with new call and response songs, dances, and games. Children will learn to play new songs on the glockenspiel while practicing musical concepts and notation. Special focus is given to the instrument sounds of strings and woodwinds. You’ll also delight in Peter and the Wolf and an excerpt from Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.
Home Materials: Song book, glockenspiel (semester 1), Home CD, Music at Home cards, Folder, Activity Pages, Games Bag, and carry bag (free for all Sem. 1 students!)
