About This Activity


(Ages 24 to 36 months, with parent/caregiver)

Whether you would like to reinforce the Spanish that is already spoken at home, or would like to expose your child to the music of Latin America and Spain, this class provides a wonderful opportunity for a parent or caregiver and child to make music together as they participate in slightly more complex musical activities in Spanish, including singing songs and lullabies, chants, finger plays, wiggles, bounces, listening and movement.

Call and response activities in Spanish are introduced as well as activities that encourage creativity and individual contribution. Simple percussion instruments such as shakers, drums, and bells are used to enforce the learning of steady beat. Concepts such as body/spatial awareness, numbers, colors, shapes, seasons, family, and animals are reinforced through identification games and musical play. Participants receive guidance on children's musical development, along with tools that support the creation of a nurturing musical environment at home. No previous knowledge of Spanish is necessary.

Class activities and benefits include:

  • Opportunities to play basic percussion instruments such as shakers and drums
  • Repertoire of songs and activities to use at home
  • Age-appropriate musical activities that support childhood development
  • Increased social development and exploration
  • Encouragement of individual response
  • Cultivation of creative expression
  • Development of identification skills
  • Reinforcement of Spanish skills

En esta clase, los niños y sus padres/cuidadores van a gozar de hacer música explorando el folklor vibrante de España y América Latina. Vamos a cantar, bailar, escuchar, hacer cosquillas y jugar juegos sencillos en español.

Conceptos como números, colores, figuras, estaciones, la familia, y animales son reforzados con juegos de identificación y juegos musicales. También se introducen actividades que fomentan participación individual. Si desea continuar el español que su hijo/hija habla en casa, o solamente quiere divertirse con su hijo/hija mientras que aprende canciones y bailes en español, esta es una manera maravillosa de hacer música con su niño.

Actividades y beneficios de la clase incluyen:

  • Oportunidades para tocar instrumentos de percusión básicos como maracas y tambores
  • Repertorio de canciones y actividades para usar en casa
  • Actividades musicales apropiadas para la edad que apoyan el desarrollo infantil
  • Fomento del desarrollo social y exploración
  • Fomento de la respuesta individual
  • Cultivación de expresión creativa
  • Desarrollo de habilidades de identificación
  • Refuerzo de habilidades para hablar Español
