This lesson theme is Clocks and Mice, a 30 minute music lesson plan for children from 2 1/2 to 5 years old and it is 7 pages long, including 2 printables.
The Clocks and Mice lesson focuses on:
- Recognising the steady beat
- Tapping rhythms
- Introduction to notation (minims/half notes, crotchets/ quarter notes and quavers/ eighth notes)
- Learning to recognise and pitch the So-Mi interval with resonator bells
- Listening skills
- Building confidence
- Using tone blocks and a variety of percussion instruments
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.
