What's new in Kindergarten Music...

Music class this month has been focused on proper concert etiquette.  Students have been learning the "dos" and "don'ts" when they attend a performance.  We have also been singing some fun holiday songs such as "Listen to the Jingles" and "Whackey Old St. Nick" (this is the song with only three words).  Check out the links below for some dances and song videos that have become class favorites.
