“The more you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you will go.” Dr. Seuss
With music, children sing and learn rhymes. This workshop explores what children are doing with the song and rhyme to develop language skills. Music is a natural way for children to experience rich language in a pleasurable way and
learn new vocabulary. All parents and children are welcome!
The MCEC Parent to Parent workshops share practical ideas, proven techniques, and solid resources to support military-connected families.
First 30 children (ages 4 and up ONLY); registration recommended!
