Each acts as a dramatic catalyst for integrating thematic songs, activities, events, and feelings. In See What I Saw, you will enjoy the many wonders of a trip to Grasshopper Park. The music represents a variety of different cultures with songs from Ghana, Latin America, Greece, and France. You will find some favorites including “Ha Ha This-a- Way,” “Jim Along Josie,” and “Mr. Sun,” “A Tisket, A Tasket,” “Shoo-Fly,” “and Allee Galloo.” There are also many new, original compositions like the chant “Everything is Just Fine.” Code: Days: Times: Dates: 1006 Thursdays 1:00 - 1:45pm Sept. 14 - Dec. 14 (No class 10/26 & 11/23) Fee: Res. $145 Materials fee: $70 payable to instructor the first day (1 instrument, 2 literature books, 2 CD’s, Family Activity Book, a play set and a backpack) Registration Deadline: Sept. 8, 2017 Limit: 5/8 Kindermusik Family Time!
