Wiggles & Giggles
Wiggles & Giggles is a wonderful blend of the unlimited physical energies and uninhibited playfulness of the Our Time age child! The careful weaving of songs and activities promote interaction between parent and child where the parent gently guides their child's learning and the process of scaffolding takes place. One favorite movement activity is the Music & Movement Story Time with the Watch Me! book. Other delightful songs include "Wishy Washy Wee!" "I See You," and "Clapping Land."
A variety of activities focus on various lesson themes such as steady beat, tempo, and musical form. Children will enjoy exploring shaker instruments and metal instruments and incorporating fun, creative props like scarves, sponges, hoops, and mirrors.

See What I Saw
In this class, preschoolers use their real experience of playing in the park to create imaginative, storytelling scenarios with music--go on an imaginary trip to Grasshopper Park where they sail down the park slide and then recreate the sound of that experience with a loooong vocal glissando.  Each week provides preschoolers one uninterrupted session of imaginative play that's guided in a very specific, sequential way--with a special sharing time with parents in the last 15 minutes of class

Home Materials:  Two literature books, two Home CDs, a Family Activity Book, an instrument, all packaged in an Imagine That! backpack.

Semester One: Everything your child learns later in semesters 2, 3, and 4 begins with this early introduction to singing, reading, and writing music and rhythm. Through dances and games that focus on rhythmic development, we'll learn a keyboard instrument—the glockenspiel—which will be used throughout all the Young Child classes. Your At Home Materials provide the music, instruments, stickers, and activities for a home version of the same playful activities you'll hear about from class, so your child—and you!—can learn where you're most comfortable: at home.

Semester Three: Appalachian music is a featured musical style this semester. First, you and your child will build a two-stringed dulcimer instrument with materials that we'll provide. Then in class we'll learn to play chords and simple melodies on the instrument you built together. We'll also explore rhythm concepts through dance with an introduction to the basic steps in jazz, ballet, and tap dances. Your Home Materials include dulcimer-making materials, activity cards, and music that features recordings from Appalachia, African-America, and Native American music, as well as the Western Art music of the Nutcracker Suite.

Kindermusik has brought the unparalleled benefits of music web-content education to private music studios around the world, delighting both children and parents with our creative and developmentally appropriate musical activities for over 35 years. Kindermusik@School, our research-based program designed especially for schools, brings the same benefits of music education to the classroom. Easy-to-implement lessons help teachers meet the needs of every child at each of five developmental levels. Each lesson fosters whole-child development, builds school readiness, and introduces the joy and power of music into virtually any early childhood learning setting.

And Kindermusik@School is effective: results from a recent independent research study showed that preschoolers who participated in a Kindermusik@School curriculum for as little as 30 minutes each week showed a 32% greater gain in early language and literacy skills than the control group.

The Kindermusik@School curricula align with standards for high-quality early childhood education, including: Common Core State Standards, Head Start and Early Head Start Standards and Frameworks, the Infant/Toddler Environment Rating Scale (ITERS), the Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale (ETERS), and the Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS®) Pillars.
