Get ready to spruce up the house in this home-themed unit. We’ll turn tasks such as cooking, cleaning, sawing, painting, and hammering into fun, pretend-play activities that make us move more creatively and use our imaginations. At the same time, we’ll explore the relationship between sounds and symbols, and build community as we sing and play together. Whether it’s a great big house (or a den, nest, or burrow!), there’s no place like Home Sweet Home!

Nursery rhymes endure for a reason. They’re quirky, rhymey, and memorable–and are also magical for speech and language development, as they work to “wire” the brain for communication before speech even begins! What bliss to share something with your child that your parents shared with you–or better yet, to learn and share one for the very first time! Welcome to Mama Goose.
Old MacDonald: Time to tune up baby’s listening ears, because we’re off to the farm! With a hee-haw here and a cock-a-doodle there–when Old MacDonald gets involved, you never know whom you might run into.
What’s the weather like today? Look outside the window and see! Is it raining with plenty of drip-drop, splashy sounds to imitate? Or is it a cold, snowy morning just right to make some pretend snowballs? In this weather-themed nit, we’ll move to the music, explore rhythms and patterns, categorize sounds, and highlight the musical concepts of crescendo and decrescendo. Prepare to create a rainstorm symphony of sounds and move like leaves in the wind – the sun, rain, wind, and snow are all waiting right Outside My Window.
