Little New-Yorkers in May

May 5 and May 8:

This week we’re listening to the beat of the city and learning how there’s music everywhere. Continuing with the musical theme, children will then make a mini finger drum.

May 12 and May 15:

Cool Daddy Rat by Kristyn Crow

This week we’re chilling out with this jazzy family tale. We’ll explore jazz and scat and children will take home their own mini bass.

May 19 and May 22:

Squeak, Rumble, Whomp! Whomp! Whomp! by Wynton Marsalis

Join us this week for this fun musical book that has more sounds than words! We’ll then make little paper trumpets.

May 26 and May 29:

Rap a Tap Tap by Diane Dillon

Join us to learn about the amazing dancer Bill “Bojangles” Robinson! Kids will then make a tap dancing man.
