Seasonal Songs and Plays with Lynn St. Pierre

The Magic of Wilma Ellersiek

Through touch, self-movement, balance and a sense of well-being the young child comes “in” to their physical body and begins to orient themselves in the world. This is one of our tasks as early childhood educators: to offer rich developmental opportunities that strengthen the child’s lower four senses, their foundation for the rest of their lives. These simple, yet powerful songs and plays by Wilma Ellersiek, engage and delight the young child as we offer warmth, love and joy in these rich developmental experiences.

Each class will be a LIVE Zoom call with Lynn, and participants will have access to the recording (private link) for two weeks after the event in order to better learn the songs.

April 28 – 7 p.m. Central Time April Showers Bring May Flowers!

“Who enjoys the Rain? Trees and flowers, grass and grain…..the earthworm and the creeping snail…..the frog upon his mossy bed!” We’ll sing and gesture and delight in all that the spring rains bring! Then with the Sun Song, “giving warmth and light,” the Flowers Grow, “flowers sprout……bloom and blossom, one by one.” Then along comes a Visitor, a beautiful butterfly, full of butterfly kisses, gentle touches for the young child. In the Shining Sun, we’ll dance and sing Round-a-Ring celebrating spring! And rest in the lullaby Softly, Softly I sing too………
