She has her people, her posse, her mom and the twins. She has Grace. Not about her dark, runaway thoughts, not about kissing Grace or noticing Jasper, the new boy.

But after what happens on the beach—first in the ocean, and then in the sand—the tethers that hold Biz steady come undone. Dad disappears and, with him, all comfort. It might be easier, better, sweeter to float all the way away? Or maybe stay a little longer, find her father, bring him back to her.

Have fun, use your own imagination, and the students will have a magical time! Our big concept these next few weeks is compassion. Some might think this is a lofty word to explain to a preschooler, but we think it is THE word that needs to be covered with the tiniest of humans.
Accepting, encouraging, loving and appreciating differences and diversity is exactly what I am covering with my 3-year-olds, all the way up to my big kids. It is also about friendship and loving our fellow humankind. Spotify to the rescue- again! Run a search for public playlists that pivot around the words love, kindness, friendship, etc. You will find all kinds of sweet music for your little dancers. Create your own playlist and throw whatever strikes your fancy in there to ensure that each selection is age-appropriate. We have all been there! Having a Prime membership is one of our best suggestions for keeping your preschool classes engaging.

Ballet February Color Sheet. Tap February Color Sheet. Hip Hop February Color Sheet. Ballet February Sticker. This year, we are trying out a brand-new activity in a few of our February classes. One of our dance education colleagues online had a fabulous idea for her older students in dance, and it sparked this particular idea of ours for younger classes. We are encouraging our babies to learn how to give compliments, encouragement and love to others!
We are printing out a simple template made on canva. I will ask my students to share their positive thoughts about each of their friends so that I can quickly jot them down with a permanent marker on a previously-mentioned sticky heart. In a class of 6 dancers, each child goes home with 5 compliments. It is totally ok to have a few duplicates of each. Have them perform another step for vocabulary review or even do something silly, based on what they chose to freeze on! Assign partners for the class.
This helps reinforce kindness in a tangible way for your kiddos. Take it a step further! Buddies can help each other change dance shoes, pack up dance bags, etc. Another idea would be to have them go across the floor together in class. Use this as an opportunity to discuss dancing in-sync with others. Bada bing bada boom! We have covered a formation change, as well as timing and musicality! Kindness totally rules…. One of the very first things we do after hiring a new teacher is give them an official teacher kit.
These are the basic items that we think our teachers need in order to be successful. Every preschool dance teacher needs a few tricks up his or her sleeve to make classes more magical. Here are some of our favorites:. Silicone spots: Seriously, you need these. Little ones need a designated space that is their own.
