Music Together Sing Shalom - New York City

0

Music Together Sing Shalom's weekly parent-child music classes are uniquely designed for families with young children (birth-age 5) using the internationally recognized Music Together early childhood music education program enriched with Jewish songs. Each week, a community of families comes together to sing, dance, and play in a class led by a trained Music Together teacher/Jewish educator. Families will learn lots of ways to interact musically with their children while supporting development, strengthening family relationships, and connecting with the Jewish music tradition.

Music Together Sing Shalom is offered in collaboration with The Jewish Education Project with funding by UJA-Federation of New York. Photos courtesy of Music Together Worldwide.

My First Book Club

0

Through My First Book Club, children will gain a love of reading and an appreciation of books. They'll have the opportunity to become part of a community of readers and experience the social power of peers working together to explore the wonderfully exciting world of books. 

Clubs meet for one hour each week for ten consecutive weeks. Each session supports early childhood learners in making meaning while they read, think, and talk about books. Through the use of an interactive read-aloud, habits of a good reader are demonstrated. Children participate in guided conversations and activities about featured books.

Each club is kept to a maximum of 6 readers, and clubs are organized by age group. If you have a group of 4-6 children and would like to host a club, My First Book Club can create a class for you at your home.

My First Book Club will help your children establish their identities as readers while building the foundational skills for reading.
