All students attend Music and Creative Movement everyday. Mrs. Turner creates music experiences that compliment the studies in their classroom.  She will introduce students to songs, chants, introduction to many musical instruments, musical concepts (such as beat, tempo, rests, notes, etc.).  Mrs. Turner also incorporates many vigorous activities for the children, including yoga, workout sessions, games, obstacle courses, movement to music, stretching and bending, core strengthening exercises, and much practice of body awareness and self-control.  Mrs. Turner is also responsible for the musical part of classroom productions for parents:  The 4s End of Year Production and TK Graduation.
