Music

  

      

The music center can be used individually by children or in small groups, and often extends into large group activities. Keeping the beat, listening for rhymes, cooperating in a group setting, "reading" the song chart, all support children's cognitive learning as well as being pleasurable.
 

When we play in the music center, we are learning:

rhythm
sharing
planning and evaluating
pitch
group participation
critical thinking
perceptual motor skills
balance and coordination
sound discrimination
large motor movements
