Morning Singing Time

We love having our parents participate in our morning singing time. This part of the day serves a couple of purposes.  Not only is it a great way to start the day but it also helps with the fluidity of language.  Children also learn about rhythm and beat when they patsch on the side of their thighs when singing or reciting rhymes.  This in turn is an extension of Orff Schulwerk, where the children internalize rhythm and beat with the percussion instruments.

We would appreciate your help in maintaining the morning singing time to that of a learning atmosphere.

How can you help?

  • Have your children sit in a crisscross pose, not reclining.
  • Patsch when singing along so that your child will model your example.
  • Conduct adult conversations outside of the Orff room or wait until singing time concludes.
  • Please leave a pathway near the doors for incoming families.
  • Help monitor your child’s behavior with their friends, guiding them back to what they should be doing. Thank you !

appropriate cubby.  Thank you!
