The Buses & Trains theme always go down well as a preschool lesson plan with plenty of movement and lots of different sound effects, it’s particularly good for practicing contrasting tempos and is an absolute hit with all the little train enthusiasts out there!
The Buses and Trains lesson plan introduces:
- Practicing different tempos
- Counting practice
- Chime bars, Do-Re-Mi and note recognition with resonator bells.
- Imaginative movement
- Playing a variety of percussion instruments
- Tapping the steady beat and recognising the rhythm
- Singing together and joining in with the actions.
These plans are not intended to read as a script, as everyone will have their own teaching style. They aim to 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.
The Buses & Trains lesson is also available as part of our seasonal bundle of lesson plans for the Autumn/Fall term 12 weeks of music lessons in suggested weekly order to help save time and keep things simple at the discounted price of $49
I have purchased every lesson you have available and LOVE them all!! I lead music classes for toddlers and preschoolers and I love how each of your lessons builds on each other. They are easy to adapt for the different ages. The parents of my students love that their kids are learning early music education while having a blast and that the kids go home and sing and stomp out rhythms. I would highly recommend your plans to everyone. And I look forward to seeing the other lessons.
