Rhythms of AfriCaribe

 When children to move in time to music, it helps them develop a sense of rhythm. Performing activities such as dancing, marching, or clapping to a beat helps children learn where to divide language, which will help them sound out words when they are learning to read.

Join us this Wednesday for the Rhythms of the AfriCaribe. Your children won’t be able to stop dancing to the beat!

It is nice to remind young children of what they can do to help deal with frustration about something they can’t do!
