Currently, classroom teachers provide instruction in the Pre-Kindergarten classrooms.

Many Pre-Kindergarten students have not had the experience of working cooperatively with other students in large group settings. These are life skills that are transferred to many school activities. Pre-Kindergarten music classes incorporate many activities to introduce the students to the dynamics of working cooperatively within a group setting. The skills would include but not be limited to:

  • Following directions
  • Taking turns
  • Using listening ears and kind hands
  • Respecting personal space of all participants
  • Playing cooperatively in organized games
  • Maintaining place in circle games
  • Following the leader
