Music Program:

Week 1:  We’re celebrating Cowboys today!  Everyone will have a chance to give their favorite cowboy “hoot” or “holler” in the microphone!  “Hurry Little Pony” will help us find the beat, and then we will use the ponies ‘Peaches’ and ‘Blackie’ and move to some western tunes.  Lummi sticks will be used to tap along to “I’d Like To Be A Cowgirl” and we will finish around the campfire to “Happy Trails.”

Week 2:  For the next two weeks we will be working with partners.  We will start by moving with our partners to “Bop Till You Drop.”  Next we will learn sign language for the word friend and use it in “Please Be a Friend of Mine.”  After that, we will toss a ball to our partner and sing “Take Me Out To The Ball Game.”  Next we will pass a ball around the circle to “Hot Potato.”  We will play our instruments to “We Go Together” and we will finish with the scarves singing “You Got a Friend In Me.”

Week 3:  We will continue with our partners this week.  We will take turns singing “Hello” to our partner with the microphone.  We will move to the “Chicken Dance”, swinging our partner and doing crazy moves to other familiar tunes.  We will row a boat with our partner to an all drum version of “Row Your Boat.”  Then we will finish our day by playing two piece instruments with our partner working together to make music.

Week 4:  We will continue our socialization unit with a friendship theme this week.  We will begin by “Shake Hands With A Good Friend” and learn how to shake hands.  Next we will move together with my stuffed animals to “Friends Forever” and dance to “A Visit To My Friend.”  We will continue with a special story called “A Book of Friends” and end our day by marching and playing the “Friendship March.”
