Becker's has partnered with Kindermusik International to offer ABC Music & Me® curriculum packages for children ages 1 - 5 in early childhood classroom settings. This comprehensive program uses music and movement to build social-emotional, early language, literacy, physical, cognitive, and motor skills. ABC Music & Me® is a child-centered, developmentally appropriate approach to learning and school-readiness and is offered for four age groups: Sing & Play (12-24 months), Wiggle & Grow (24-36 months), Laugh & Learn (3-4 years), and Move & Grow (4-6 years).
The Laugh & Learn Classroom Solution comes with everything you need to easily and quickly implement weekly lessons and experiences for home and school. Just grab the Teacher’s Kit, pop in the CD, and go at your own pace using the high quality, child-friendly instruments, activities, and resources! Family involvement is a key part of the program. Children are given take-home packs for each of 9 thematic units that contain a music CD, book, and other resources. The Laugh & Learn Classroom Solution is flexible enough to be used successfully by educators with little or no musical background as well as experienced music teachers.
