Description

Join Sharon and Kate Beever for a morning of hands-on lessons you can bring back to your classroom as tools for educational, cognitive, and social learning. Book and song pairings with associated activities will incorporate speech and literacy, critical thinking and analysis, and social skills. Gain comfort using music with your students and learn about its benefits for literacy and learning. No musical experience necessary.
