Learning and understanding contrasts help prepare children to think about and focus on important details, sort, and classify objects and promote organizational skills!

Here are some musical terms you can add to learning:

Legato is smooth.

Allegro is Fast.

Adagio is slow.

Forte is loud.

Piano is quiet.

Sing a Song!

And while you’re walking, you can sing this tune called Pretty Leaves are Falling Down to the same melody of London Bridge.

Pretty leaves are falling down

It is autumn!
