Just the Bear Necessities-May & June Activities

We are off to the zoo...

We are learning about all of the various animals. In class we discussed each animal and their babies' names.  During our movement exercises we explored a pretend play activity as if we actually took a zoo trip. We moved and stretched like animals we would see on a visit.  We even  worked on counting all of the animals we saw in our story time book. We learned all about:  

  • Rhythmic Expression: Finding and exploring various rhythms with hand held shakers

  • Repeating the Solfege (Do-Re-Me): Adding the challenge of singing to "La"

  • Coordination: Coordinating movements in time with music

  • Phonics: Exploring the alphabet through a song all about animals

 

During our music unit we are learning about various animals. You'd be surprised by some of the unique names animals and their young have. Play a matching game to teach your toddlers. Sing to the tune of London Bridge: "I like baby animals, animals,animals, I like baby animals, I'll name some for you."
