Thanks for stopping by A Family Place. I enjoy working with families, and sharing the power of music with them. Kindermusik provides this outlet for me. This blog will allow me to share thoughts and ideas that can help families in their journey.

It's Ag Week at Berry College

Every spring the Block and Bridle Club at Berry College has Agriculture week.  This week highlights aspects of the agriculture program at the college.  Typically there are tractors and other large farming equipment on the drive into main campus.  This always thrills the kids coming to Kindermusik class.  I haven't seen any tractors yet...but maybe!

Here's the Ag Week Agenda for March 19 - 23:
Monday - Roping Demonstration, 11 - 1 in front of Krannert (student center)
Tuesday - Rent a puppy, $2 donation, 15 minutes to call a puppy yours!  11 - 1, Krannert lawn
Wednesday - Sheep Herding Demonstration and Berry Angus cookout.  Memorial Library lawn beginning at 5 p.m.  Burger is $3, plate is $5.
Thursday - Petting Zoo.  This is favorite for Kindermusik kids!  11 - 1, Krannert lawn.  The kids can pet lambs, calves, sheep and horses.

Not sure where to locate Krannert or Memorial Library, find it here.  Enjoy!!

Summer Schedule & Maps

The summer schedule is out, and it actually begins with Maymester classes. You can pick up a brochure when you come to class or find it here.  Don't wait too long to make your decision, because there is quite a buzz about registering for certain classes with friends!! 

The spring semester has about 5 more sessions, depending on who teaches your class.  Please note that Ms. Wendy's classes will NOT meet the week of March 26.  Ms Kay & Ms Kathryn's classes WILL meet every week, as they are not observing any of the school breaks.

This week in Imagine That we are exploring maps, and places we would like to visit on our train trips.  Imagine That is all about using our imagination and discovery. The children in the Thursday 11 a.m. class brought in maps of places they like to visit.  Here's the group: Avery, Matthew, Alexa, Charlie & Garrett.  My phone doesn't take the best pictures, but you get the idea!
The large map is Avery's world, and it was created as a Christmas gift by his mom.  It's some of his favorite places, and it includes Kindermusik!  Here's another you see the castle at the top of the map?
Where do you want to go??  Kindermusik can help you imagine it!
