Next Workshop- Saturday, November 18th 2017- Preschool Music: Building the Foundation through Exploration and Play
The excitement of the beginning of the school year is passed. I don’t know about your classroom but it seems every pencils eraser has disappeared. It is about this time each year that a lesson idea refresher is due to put some life in those lesson plans while gear up for the holidays. So what a great time to attend a Fox Valley Orff Schulwerk Chapter workshop. We are please to welcome Cathy Dunafin on November 18th, 2017. Cathy will be leading a workshop in early childhood music from birth through 1st grade. And then as a bonus she will be leading our Orff Moment on great resources for your classroom. So if you have a resource you can’t live without, please bring it and Cathy will be sharing some of her favorites as well. Please join us for our next workshop- Preschool Music: Building the Foundation through Exploration and Play.
School has begun. The weather has begun cooling down. It is time to refresh yourself with a some professional development. We have had a schedule change so this year our first workshop will be October 14th. We are welcoming Dr. Jui-Chang Wang for a multicultural workshop A “Musicking” Classroom: Singing, Playing, and Dancing around the World. We will be visiting a number of countries around the world including Korea, China, and a closer to home place as well.
