Children LOVE to ROAR ! Our Rock & Roar events this Spring have stirred up our wild side and inspired our schedule of summer adventures !
Exploring the world of wild animals is fascinating to children of all ages. A trip to the zoo or an animal park to see the live animals takes families into a whole new world they don’t see everyday. But the fun and magic of this experience can come alive everyday for you and your family with the songs and activities from the Kindermusik Summer Adventure, ZOO TRAIN Physical Home Materials, and Laugh & Learn, Wild Animal Park Digital Home Materials.
- Included with Enrollment: Zoo Train Book, Zoo Train CD, animal shaped shaker, craft supplies
- Optional: Digital Activity Set: Access to more music, a new online story, video field trips, games and more.
What excitement there is to see the many animals, hear their sounds, ride the train or tram around the park, and more. ZOO TRAIN! was written to capture these delightful experiences at the zoo, drawing on the movements, sights, and sounds of the zoo animals to inspire musical experiences and the beginnings of imaginary play.
In our 2016 summer camps, there are six different concept themes, developed in the context of the animals you will meet that day. The lessons are designed to offer just the right balance of structure and spontaneity, of group play and individual exploration and to offer the stability and gentle guidance needed to nurture creativity in the very young.
There is some overlap of these themes between each class, but this is the general overview:
- A: Zoo Train Grand Parade: The Alley Allee O (Zoo Train) and All Animal Parade
- B: Jungle Jam: Giraffes, Zebras, Lions & Elephants
- C: Close Encounters of the Wild Kind: Petting Animals, Pony rides, The Aviary
- D: Dancing Down Under: Kangaroos, Kookaburras, Dingos
- E: Rockin’ Rain Forest: Monkeys & Parrots; Tree frogs & Sloths
- F: Polar Paradise: Polar Bears, Seals & Penguins
These lessons are scheduled at a variety of times throughout the summer. Your family is encouraged to schedule a consistent day and time so you catch each unique theme, and generally have consistency with the families also enrolled in that class time. Adapted schedules can also typically make adjustments to get the missed theme. Most of the information below is include on the Enrollment Form.
