Please join us for the Kindergarten-First Grade Shapely Sounds Music Gathering. The Kindergarteners have been exploring timbre and pattern and have composed a song which they will play on a variety of rhythm instruments. The 1st graders have been studying the octave scale and will perform a song using rhythmic “boom-whackers.”
Clinical neuropsychologist, William Stixrud, and his co-author, Ned Johnson, combine insights from clinical practice, brain science and educational coaching in their deeply researched book, The Self Driven Child, to offer practical advice and a vision for how parents can use a collaborative, mutually respectful approach to raise ‘self-driven’ children, who are independent, purpose-driven and have a healthy definition of what is a successful and meaningful life. This book is a must read for all parents and educators. Order a discountedpaperback orhardcovercopy of the book ahead!
