PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Greetings: I’m Michael Welch, the author of MrMikesMusicMats.

My Music and Math book teaches early learners (age 4 & Up) the rhythmic value of music notes. This book only uses addition. In my classes I begin by teaching the students these values.

Whole Note and Whole Rest = 4 Beats
Dotted Half Note = 3 Beats
Half Note and Half Rest = 2 Beats
Quarter Note and Quarter Rest = 1 Beat
2 Eight Notes = 1 Beat

I use my Notation Flashcards on a regular basis. After they have a basic understanding of these signs I play Music & Math games with them.

Example:

(1) With 2 hands, I’ll hold up 2 fingers on the left hand.

This is a Half Note. It gets 2 beats.

(2) On the right hand, I’ll hold up 1 finger.

This is a quarter note. It gets 1 beat.

(3) The left hand is 2 beats

(4) The right hand is 1 beat

(5) 2 Beats plus 1 Beat equals how many beats? 3 beats

You can be very creative with “YOUR WAY” to teach this concept of Music & Math.


I’m Michael Welch, author and publisher of MrMikesMusicMats.

I’ve created hundreds of tools to share with you. My curriculum will help early learners of many age groups. They will grow and develop during their most important learning years.

I began the creation of my “Early Learner” music curriculum in 2007. I’ve taught thousands of early learners, infants & toddlers ages 2 up through Pre-K-UP. Five days a week for Ten years. I retired from my classroom position November 2017 to dedicate my full attention to my curriculum program.

My 10 years of experience gave me much insight and knowledge into the field of early learner education, childcare training and education provider management.

For you the Home School Parent, Child Care Education Provider, Day Care Teacher, Music Specialist, VPK, Private Montessori School and more. (Number 1) I’m always available to help with your teaching and education provider needs. I want you to be able to provide your child or your students with my curriculum.

(Number 2) From my 10 years experience teaching in a day care/education provider, I’ve seen how classrooms operate with employed staff and teachers. If you’re an education provider, I can help you and your staff.

(Number 3) My curriculum was created to “Help Others Teach The Gift Of Music,” (at every daycare/early learner education provider in the United States. That is my curriculums target market, Thousands of Child Care/Education providers---millions of early learners.

A curriculum like “MrMikesMusicMats” doesn’t exist. My curriculum is the only “complete music curriculum” in the world for “Early Learners” that provides music education to this age group.

My curriculum is a BRAND.

(Number 4) Most education providers can’t employ “music specialist” because of extra cost. They may have a little “music station” in a corner with a couple percussion instruments, that’s about it. You can now provide your classroom teachers with my curriculum. Everyone will benefit. The students, teachers and parents when they discover the new things their child is learning in your program.

I understand how Federal Pre-K, VPK and State curriculum guidelines vary. My curriculum raises the bar much higher.

(Number 5) Early Learners / Kids / Students love my curriculum in their classroom.

(Number 6) During my 10 years, 5 days a week of teaching, I’ve seen the struggles of teachers/educators in their classroom. I know how different fields of curriculum are taught during a child’s day. My curriculum is a welcome relief for these classroom teachers.

(THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT)

My curriculum contains a very high amount of Kinesthetic or Tactile Material.

The classroom teacher can use my materials with their student’s, as they require, at the time they need it. This means, they can delegate it to a special student or to groups of students.

My material, when used by the classroom teacher can be useful with classroom management. I’ve been in the trenches of early learner classrooms.

(Number 7) My materials can be used on tables, floors, inside, outside and more. One student or several in a “Music Station” can use my materials.

(Number 8) My 18x24 and 24x36 inch mats are designed for multiple students. {4 - 6 on each mat}

(Number 9) Offering Education and training for your buyers/users of this curriculum will enhance their confidence and long-term experience.

I’ve created various media sources are possible to provide teacher training and also media lessons for students. My curriculum is Smartboard, iPad and computer/projector friendly.
