Another exciting part of our day is when we are singing songs and working with musical instruments. The drum and maracas have gotten a lot of use each day by all of our friends. Our friends love to move their bodies to the rhythm of the songs and dance when they hear a favorite song. Popular tunes have been “Open Shut Them” and “The Itsy Bitsy Spider”. Both of these songs include hand motions that our older friends enjoy participating in. It has been such a joy to watch all of our infant friends delighting in music that is shared in our room.
Next month we will be adding pumpkins and gourds to the classroom in celebration of fall. We will also be reading fall themed books and signing songs about “orange” pumpkins throughout the month.
Happy Fall everyone!
