Our Sheep Lesson Plan is an excellent music class for the spring time or at any other time of year, with plenty of opportunity for exploring rhythm, singing and developing the imagination.
Children up to 6 years of age will love learning to play the chime bars and enjoy the rhythm game and circle games, while toddlers from 18 months are able to take part in most of these activities with a little extra help.

The Sheep music lesson plan focuses on:
- Learning solfege (Mi-Re-Do) 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 rhythmic actions – speech development, story telling and motor skills
- Social skills; working in a group, following instructions and building confidence
- Imaginative movement to music and role play.
The Sheep lesson plan is suitable for children of 18 months – 7 years old and it is 15 pages long with 7 printables included.

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!”
