What are we learning?
By being introduced to different themes, children are expanding their knowledge of music as a whole; artists, genres, instruments, musical forms, etc.
Music and movement allows children to move freely, encouraging creative expression and gross motor development.
A book reading not only entices children's interest on what we are learning about. It aids in literacy development, as they listen and follow along to what is being read.
Being exposed to real instruments, and being able to have a hands on experience with them, allows children to expand upon their current mental schemas of what each instrument looks like and sounds like.
Live performance gives children opportunity to see how instruments are played, and practice audience skills!
By playing hand/percussion instruments, children are practicing tempo, dynamics, and rhythm. As children count tempo, they are practicing their mathematical skills. In addition, grasping and shaking small instruments encourages fine motor development!
Songwriting involves teamwork, imagination, creative expression, and literacy practice!
