I saw so many parenting & teaching posts today talking about the feeling like we can’t get a break from the bad news & anxieties - it’s all just too much to bare. Today is a difficult day in our area because of #robbelementary especially for parents, teachers, and children. Sometimes there are few to no words- what helps one person may deepen the dispare or anger in another. But depending on your p
Song and music can help with so much!! Singing is something for everyone - It’s a tool for joy, learning, transition, connection, motivation, so much more! @kindermusikbysally is a safe space not just for the children but also caregivers to feel free to be, move, play, and sing. Come sing with us! One article that talks about the power of song is at PBS kids https://snip.ly/1rwqob?fbclid=IwAR24Cnk_miyZvKSqwDALeYmHr1SPKzF7TgY4BHG7_xY7A8MFWr-hwli3ffc#https://www.pbs.org/paren

Review of another activity we do regularly. Earlier this month we listened to jazz piano (like you hear in Charle Brown), played the floor piano using our feet, and used spider fingers on the acoustic piano.
