Who: Education Service Center, Region 2 & 200+ early childhood teachers
You know them as award-winning children’s author and songwriter John Archambault and British recording artist David Plummer. Kids know them as FUN!
John & David first teamed up in 1990 to produce a musical version of the best-selling book, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, and the project blossomed into a wonderful long-term partnership. They have produced six albums on the Youngheart Music label: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and Other Coconutty Songs, Plant a Dream, Grandmother’s Garden, Wonder the Ocean, Painting My World, and their latest release, Dancing on the Moon. http://www.johnarchambault.com/music.html
What: The celebration will be songs, storytelling and poetry with John Archambault and David Plummer.
When: Thursday, April 8, 2010 at 8:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Where: 209 N. Water Street, Corpus Christi, Texas 78401, 3rd floor
Why: The presentation builds upon the magical capacity of music to create meaningful language experiences again and again. The repetition of melodies, cadences, and phrases of song is especially helpful for children with English as a second language. As children intuitively and effortlessly absorb language patterns, the stage is set for them to become successful readers.
