Music and Movement
All classes attend weekly music classes with Ms. Macey. During music, children learn new songs for chapel, practice for music programs, and even get to play their own instruments! Each class participates in music programs throughout the year, including the 5's Christmas pageant, the 4's circus, and the school-wide music program in March. Music class is a favorite among AEK students.
3s, 4s and 5s join Ms. Macey for P.E. once a week. The children explore a variety of traditional physical exercises as well as creative movement activities. They work on developmentally appropriate gross motor skills including running, balancing, galloping, skipping, jumping, throwing and kicking. Students also learn the rules of the playground and how to maneuver the equipment, go on nature hikes to find signs of fall and spring, and even practice child-friendly yoga poses. At the end of the year, the children participate in the AEK Olympics, complete with gold medals!
