Cotati Community Center
201 W Sierra Ave

Music and play have a powerful and positive influence with children. If you combine these elements with movement the experience is elevated exponentially. In this workshop we will teach techniques for presenting Spanish language songs in a number of different ways in order to sing and interact in order to maintain the level of enthusiasm in kids.

We will cover the importance of song selection for each language level and age and learn some practical and easy games to use within the classroom and out.

Objectives:

Familiarization of the context of a song before introduction of the music

Presentation of a song, step by step with the TPR method

Typical games

Participants will leave the workshop with a list of Spanish language songs and techniques at the ready for using them within a group.
