The first lesson plan of 2016 has a Winter theme to encourage us all to embrace the season! It’s packed with musical activities, penguins, a snowman, puppets, and of course lots of snow too. It’s the perfect lesson plan for when you’re expecting winter weather, or just wishing for it!
This lesson is suitable for children of 2 1/2 – 7 years old and it is 11 pages long with 5 printables included. If you’re looking for more themes, check out the rest of the lesson plans here.
The Winter lesson plan focuses on the following activities:
- Learning solfege with chime bars or resonator bells
- Playing a variety of percussion instruments, recognising the steady beat and the rhythm.
- Listening skills, remembering patterns and echoing rhythms
- Singing together with actions – speech development and motor skills
- Social skills working in a group and building confidence
- Learning about the simple pleasures of the winter season.

These plans are not intended to read as a script, as everyone will have their own teaching style. More, I hope that they will provide you with in-depth guidance for a number of related activities that I have found in my years of teaching to be particularly effective and engaging combinations.
Here’s what people are saying about the Lesson Plan series!
“I downloaded the clocks and mice lesson plan and LOVED it. I’d like to start a music program in my classroom based on your lessons. I’d love to buy 30-40 lessons from you to fill up an entire school year if I could!”
“I am starting my first preschool music class next week and I need your website! :)”
“Thanks so much for all your hard work on this website and in putting together such great activities and lessons. I have been following the first piano lessons and easy pieces for the last couple of months with my six and four year old. I learnt oboe for seven years and my piano is pretty basic but these lessons have been so easy and fun to follow…and teach!”
