The program length for Grade Level and Arts / PE programs is 30-45 minutes depending on student age, population, and teacher preference. Each program has a different educational theme that the teacher may select from a menu. With advanced notice, we will happily create a theme that suits the classroom's current curriculum. Our educational reading and rhythm program themes include: Kindness / Empathy Themes - "Do You Feel Me?" Tolerance and Team Building Themes - "Twice Nice, Three Times Happy" Animal Themes - "Prehistoric Times" , "Small Critters", Astronomy Themes, "Getting Ribbit With It" amphibian theme, "Oink!" pig theme, "Birds of a Feather", and more Literacy Themes - "Libraries Rock!", "Shake, Rattle, and Read", "Verb Up!" , "Stranger Than Fiction" , and others Arts Themes - "All About Percussion Instruments" , "Just Dance!" ,'Boom Bands in Seuss-Land", and others. All of our programs feature: live music (bassist), rhythm activities, literacy and learning games, books read to live music, dance, drama activities and story-telling, and introduction to basic sign language, and instrument activities.

I can answer questions about important details in a text. I can recognize rhyming words. I can follow class rules for discussions. I can describe how characters respond to events in a story. I can explore and experience music concepts (such as beat and melodic contour) with guidance. I can explore and demonstrate awareness of music contrasts (such as high/low, loud/soft, same/different) in a variety of music selected for performance with limited guidance.
Let us combine reading, rhythm, and creativity for your students with our highly interactive classroom sessions! Every classroom session includes two people: a bassist (Garrett) and session leader (Hannah). A typical session includes: active and engaging warm-up activities introduction to basic ASL brief discussion of session theme (featured educational concept) dramatic reading of a book set to live music creative dance activity, songs and finger-plays relevant to book games designed to reinforce the CCSS in ELA and selected educational concept instrument activities (typically a band game where children learn to work as a team playing with Garrett’s bass). and our “Bye-Bye” song which children learn to sign Two Right Feet's programs are easily adjusted to suit various grade levels: our younger music program is designed to stimulate a love of reading as well as kindergarten readiness; when working with older grade levels we have the children explore more complex concepts such as parts of speech, plot details, and dynamics when singing along. Using the CCSS in ELA and the National Core Arts Standards in music and dance, it is our goal to promote: a love of reading and books, classroom kindness, and a playful approach to learning. See ‘Additional Notes’ for our list of session themes!

Two Right Feet's programs are easily adjusted to suit various grade levels by means of book choice, more complex themes and concepts, and musical and dance exercises. Every song, instrument, and rhyme activity presented helps the children to feel more familiar singing or playing in a group, matching dynamic levels (loud, soft, fast, slow), responding to the cues of the session leader, enunciate each phoneme, as well as singing along with Garry’s bass. Children also explore different forms of creative movement and dance. It is our goal to promote: a love of reading and books, classroom kindness, and a playful approach to the the arts and language, while exploring the concepts laid out by the National Core Arts Standards and the CCSS.
Each session is theme-based to aid learning and understanding of various educational concepts such as: Health and Safety I've Got Your Number (Math theme) Safari Day Small Critters Verb-Up! Read On! The Five Senses Stranger Than Fiction Transportation Dino Day The Four Seasons (one program per season) All About Instruments Dance and Creative Movement Do You Feel Me? (empathy, kindness, and team-building themes) Insects 'Punctuation Funk-tuation and more. When given notice, we are happy to take theme requests to better suit the teacher’s current curriculum and classroom topic. We are a flexible program and are more than willing to work with each classroom’s unique needs and desires. We would be more than happy to group two or more classes of one grade level together for Grade Level Programs only with advanced notice from the teaching staff.
With advanced notice, Two Right Feet would welcome parent and guardian volunteers to observe and/or help with the sessions (handing out instruments, singing along, etc). Parent and guardian volunteers are, however, not necessary in order to present the program.
