Music in Motion is designed to help young children (ages 1-5) experience music with their bodies while enhancing their language development, fine motor skills, and hand-eye coordination. They learn to watch a conductor as they stay active for 45 minutes, a wonderful bonding experience for children and caregivers. It is required for a parent (or other caregiver) to be present with your child(ren) for his/her/their safety. You can also validate them in their exploration, help them remember the concepts later, and even sing some of the songs with them during the week!
We are excited to begin the inside edition of Music in Motion on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 - 10:30 in the Ivanrest Church gym. Please park behind church and enter through the back door. Once in the gym, you will see carpet squares spaced roughly 12 feet apart, so if you picture the carpet square in the middle of your blanket (or feel free to bring your blanket), you will have roughly that amount of space for your family unit.
We will spend the first 15 minutes getting everyone their bags of instruments and situated in the gym, so it's no problem if you are running a little late. From roughly 9:45 - 10:30, Ashley will lead your children and any adults who want to participate through a variety of fun rhythms and movements that sync with her children's playlist.
In order to distance properly, we can have a maximum of 50 people in the gym, so please note the total number of people in your party when you sign up each week. Our church policy is for everyone over age 4 to wear a mask inside, and we have extras at church if you forget. We also cannot serve food in the building, so snacks will be available as you exit ... and feel free to fellowship outside with the snacks as long as you wish.
If we need to cancel due to weather or any other reason, we will do our best to send an email and post on our Facebook page by 8:30 a.m. each Tuesday.
If you (or a friend) are planning to join us this year for the first time, please fill out our Music in Motion Registration Form.
Hope to see you soon!
