The What Is The Weather Today? 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 excellent for expanding the vocabulary!
What Is The Weather Today? explores all the different types of weather while…
- Learning the solfege scale, playing chime bars or resonator bells and encouraging singing.
- Practicing the steady beat with rhythmic actions, developing listening skills, tapping rhythms and introducing notation.
- Encouraging the use of imagination through actions and imaginative movement.
- Building new vocabulary, confidence, social skills and playing a variety of different percussion instruments.
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.
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.
