School Specials

For the 2016-2017 school year, My Little School is offering students Spanish language, music, movement and gymnastics during the school day. See below for a description of these courses.

- Spanish Language

My Little School will now be offering Spanish language classes to our 2's, 3's & 4's! Each class will introduce a new theme (basic introductions, numbers, colors, animals, body parts, clothing and more), incorporating vocabulary and phrases while building on your child's growing knowledge of the language through age appropriate games, songs and fun language and cultural activities. These classes are designed to be engaging and interactive and a great way to introduce your child to the world of languages!

- Music: Timbalooloo

Timbalooloo is a new method of teaching music in a fun way during the crucial early years when children can learn languages easily and naturally, so they can become "fluent in the language of music". The instruments come to life and "talk" through their music so that when it's the children's turn to play, they are not simply executing the correct notes, but rather performing the magical act of making their instrument talk and come to life, bringing character, humor and emotion to the music! The children explore music and culture from many traditions - from Mozart to Tito Puente. The benefits beyond music are also far reaching - math, history, cultural appreciation, speech, fine and gross motor and many other skills are developed, not to mention the most important skill in life... to really listen to what is happening and then find a way to add your own beauty to what is going on at the moment.

- Movement: ShowKidz

ShowKidz is a weekly creative music and movement class. Each month classes are built around a theme and a monthly movement objective that centers on cognitive and physical development. Each lesson is not only fun for the students and teachers but is backed by strong learning concepts. Each DLL class has consistent elements that will help with stability of behavior and technical growth. DLL ShowKidz lessons will cultivate the students fine/gross motor skills, musical ability, locomotor movement, peer relationships, imagination and communication skills.

- Gymanstics

Children will warm up their bodies and stretch their gross motor muscles to prepare to practice fun tumbling skills such as forward rolls, backward rolls, bridges, handstands, cartwheels, pencil rolls and more. These exercises increase muscle strength, flexibility, hand-eye coordination, and spatial and perceptual awareness. The children will enjoy using fun props such as bean bags, scarves, parachute and more. Children will learn to integrate into groups, try new exercises, learn new motor techniques, gain confidence, and develop a willingness to try new activities.‚Äč
