November 5-December 17
This class will infuse games and movement-based activities with songs and stories that will encourage the development of creative thinking, large and fine motor skills, coordination, rhythm, teamwork, and listening skills in your preschool-aged child. We'll use a balance beam and learn basic tumbling skills during the class, all while singing and moving!
Songs featured could include "Going on a Bear Hunt," "Monkeys Jumping on a Bed," "Ants Go Marching," "Baby Bumble Bee," and "Freeze Dance." We’ll be using our imaginations to transport us into the song and get our whole body moving. We’ll stretch our bodies out with animal, superhero, or other thematic yoga, and we may even transform into rabbits and frogs as we hop and leap around the pond (the room)! Games like Please Mr. Crocodile, Red Light, Green Light, and Simon Says may also be played. Each week, we’ll explore the sights, sounds, and movements of a new theme!
