Shake fast, shake fast, shake fast, and slow, and slow, and STOP!
Our little ones are instinctively interested in fast and slow (especially fast!) In activities like Lento y Rapido we capitalize on that and provide a multisensory medium for children to completely understand the concept of fast and slow.
Howard Gardner has put forth the Multiple Intelligence Theory as a way to frame the multifaceted concept that is intelligence. Gardner's theory has sparked some debate. The way I see it, for our purposes, the scientific legitimacy of measuring intelligence through this multisensory approach is not applicable to us. We come to Kindermusik to grow a child's potential; not measure it scientifically. In my nearly 20 years as an educator, I know this, by and large children enjoy being steeped in all aspects of an activity. Appealing to multiple senses tends to increase the level of enjoyment and engagement for most children.

Simply get in touch with Ann to let her know what day and time you will be bringing your pals. The host child and the guest child will each receive the gift pictured above - Whoopee...cushion!

Due to an unexpected change in my college teaching schedule, it is necessary to adjust the time of our Wednesday morning (1-3 yr old) class. Your input on this decision is very important to me. Please take just a minute (seriously, I don't think this will take more than a single minute) to click the link below and answer 2 questions to help me decide. The change will go into effect the week of January 13.
