In this product I suggest a storybook and 2 Halloween songs followed by movement and rhythm activities. I also suggest 1 classical piece of music for ghost dancing AND a scary soundtrack to accompany the story. It is so much fun! Some visual aids are included.
The activities can be taught over several lessons and can be used with PK or first grades, depending on the level of your students. No matter what your background in music, you will find lots here that you will be comfortable teaching.
These are some of the skills that children will develop through the activities:
1. listening skills
2. singing songs
3. singing game, moving together as a group
4. hearing Classical music, moving to Classical music
5. rhythm patterns for echoing and for children to create
6. creative movement
7. cumulative story and memory skills
8. dramatic play
CLASSICS ROCK! CLASSICAL MUSIC FOR YOUNG CHILDREN is all about introducing children to great classical music, world music and jazz using storybooks that are paired up with one of these styles of music. The storybooks I suggest are all in print and used copies can often be found very inexpensively on Amazon. The recordings can be found on Amazon MP3 digital downloads or on iTunes. I give specific directions so you can easily find the recordings you need. Once you have these resources in your library, you will use them for many years to come.
