Music and Literature


Music and Literature engages students in language. During this enrichment program, students will discuss authors, illustrators, Fiction and non-fiction within books that are geared to preschool children. Students perform plays and share read-alouds throughout the year as well as creating their own classroom books to read and share. We celebrate special events and holidays in class by reading and singing songs around those themes. Students who enjoy music will love the songs and movement presented. Children participate in singing songs using hand movements and props to dance to the music. We culminate the year with 3 small plays and 3 songs performed for parents to showcase all the work they have done!
