The Dollies and Babies lesson plan theme is always a guaranteed hit! Younger toddlers love all the rocking and cuddling and older children really engage with the role-play and rhythm games.
This lesson plan includes:
- 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, storytelling and role play.
- Social skills; working in a group, following instructions and building confidence.
- Imaginative movement to music.
This Dollies and Babies lesson plan is suitable for children from 1 – 6 years and should take around 35 mins, but many of the activities can be used again separately whenever you need a short musical activity at any other time for a bit of lively movement or at circle time.
The lesson is 15 pages long including 6 pages printable resources. You can buy and download it using the button below.
This lesson plan is 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 some feedback from satisfied customers:
“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 did this with my reception class on Friday and it was wonderful! Thank you very much for such a lovely lesson plan.”
“Thanks so much for doing these lessons plans they are great.”
“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!”
