Early Childhood/Junior Primary: Songs & Rhymes from Latin America

Date:  Monday July  8, 5.00pm – 7.00pm
Venue: Te Atatu KIndergarten, 66A Divich Avenue, Te Atatu, Auckland

This workshop provides activities and ideas assisting teachers with music in the classroom. We will reach within the tradition of storytelling, clapping games and simple folk dances using Colombian music to explore singing, dancing and playing

No previous experience is necessary for involvement in this workshop.

Teachers will be able to take away a range of ideas that can immediately be included in classroom practice.
