We talked about A.A.Milne the author of Winnie the Pooh. All classes read a lot of Pooh stories. Ms. Cheryl of B Fit Kids took the children on an imaginary trip to Switzerland. We all learned how to yodel, ski and dance to Swiss music.
Mr. Chris taught the 4 and 5 year olds about music from Russia, Japan, India and Israel. The 3 year olds and younger sang favorites such as Old McDonald, ABCs and talked about musical instruments. On Mr. Chris's second visit to Alpine in January he taught the children about Jazz music. We listened to the music of Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and Dizzie Gillespie
