Sunnyside Up Saturday: Macaroni Soup

Sunnyside Up Saturday: Macaroni Soup

(For ages 2-4 with an adult) Saturday, August 20, 2011

10:00–11:00 am – Marvin Auditorium

Move and groove with your kids and the “Macaroni Lady,” Carole Stephens, as she shows how songs, stories, fingerplays, rhythmic movement and instrument play will expand a child’s musical experience in a fun way.  Many pre-reading skills happen naturally when children participate in music.  Pattern, rhyme, rhythm, sequencing, crossing the midline, vocabulary and motor coordination – for starters!  Music can be an equalizer for children of many abilities and capabilities.”

Dubbed “the Pied Piper of children’s music”, “Miss Carole” Stephens is a nationally renowned music specialist. Her cross-curricular music and guidance techniques instantly invite all audiences from the youngest child to the oldest adult to join in singing, dancing and rhythmic movement.

Accompanied by an adult, children learn new songs and refresh old favorites. Classes are education based: concepts such as color identification and music dynamics (high/low, fast/slow, loud/soft) are included in each developmentally appropriate curriculum. Everyone has fun!
