GROOVE & GROW @ G.Willikers!

Wednesday, Nov. 6th    10-10:45am

Groove & Grow is a fun and unique music class for the whole family! Little ones will have opportunities to sing, play instruments, dance and move to music and of course have a lot of fun!  During classes, children will build trust, explore and master a sense of control through musical play, and foster relationships with caregivers, siblings, and peers. Sign up at TheSonatinaCenter.com

November 9th 1:00-2:00pm

Julie Garnett's “Book Sing’n Signing” is a free, 25 – minute fun and interactive literacy musical program for children ages 1 – 6. We read books that have become songs, and sing songs that have become books, ending with “Animal Songs”…which is both!
The program is followed with the opportunity to purchase (and have signed), copies of “Animal Songs”.

Nov. 17th 10:30-12:30pm
