Every Monday during the school year, the Bean and I have a mother-daughter date. We eat a quick dinner, then head off to Musical Carousel. This is a toddler/preschooler music class, and it is the high point of Beanie’s week. Her teacher holds it in a studio behind her house, and they do sensory activities, crafts, and stories. And, of course, they sing, dance, play instruments, and do musical pitch activities. It’s a structured class, but the kids are welcome to dance or enjoy the music in any way they see fit. It’s helped the Bean’s talking as much as her therapy, and she practices the songs during the week. Tonight she wow’d everyone by singing “Hello Everybody” and saying the alphabet!
If you ever have the opportunity to attend a toddler music class, I highly recommend it!
