Learning About the USA at Rock and Roll Daycare
During July and August, we are teaching our students all about the country they live in. We are always focusing on different countries at Rock and Roll Daycare and during July and August, it’s all about the USA.
This means music, food, landmarks, and fun activities to bring it all together. We’re introducing children to patriotic songs with our American Heritage Songbook. This includes many easy songs that children can learn to sing about their country.
We’re also teaching some fun songs that have become a part of pop culture. We love to bring as much as possible into our lessons. This is just one of many ways.
As part of our curriculum, we also have lesson cards that include The Statue of Liberty, American Flag, Golden Gate Bridge, the White House, and much more. For some, this is the first time they’re learning about these things. We love to introduce new ideas and information to kids in a way they can understand and have fun at the same time.
There are also many fun coloring pages that are part of our USA curriculum. This provides a way for kids to show their artistic side while winding down and just relaxing. Adults may want to join in on the coloring fun too because it’s such a relaxing activity!
Besides all of these activities that are part of our curriculum, we also offer FREE activities on our Instagram page. Each Friday, we host a Friday’s with Phil series that brings music and crafts to kids everywhere. Recently, children learned to make a Jenny Jenkins paper doll. With a free download, kids can easily follow along and make their very own doll at home while singing along to some great patriotic tunes.
This is just one of the many ways we like to engage our students at Rock and Roll Daycare. Hands-on activities are a great way for kids to learn and have fun at the same time. At Rock and Roll Daycare, all of the lessons are inspired by the Montessori Method. We incorporate these lessons at our centers around the country as well as through our NannyShare program.
We are also working on bringing our curriculum and activities right to your door. Our subscription boxes will include all parts of our culture-based curriculum. You’ll receive the materials to bring the Rock and Roll Method into your living room. With rhythmic music, activities, and age-appropriate lessons, your child can learn about a variety of different cultures. Be sure to be on the lookout for these coming soon and continue to check out our Instagram for fun activities for the kids and everything Rock and Roll!
