Music & Movement Teacher


Students attend  Creative Movement on Mondays, which provides 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.

Students attend Music on Tuesday through Fridays.  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.).  She will monitor the weather and if children have not been outside for a while, she will include many of the same type activities they have in Creative Movement for the sake of getting their wiggles out.  Mrs. Turner is also responsible for the musical part of classroom productions for parents:  The 4s End of Year Production and TK Graduation.
