CLASSICS ROCK! CLASSICAL MUSIC FOR YOUNG CHILDREN is all about exposing children to great works of classical music, world music and jazz, through beautifully illustrated storybooks. You read the story as the recording is playing in the background. Following each story are activities that flow from the music and story – songs, rhythm, fingerplays, movement, and more. The teaching strategies emphasize learning modalities - kinesthetic, tactile, spatial, aural and visual participation by the children. The activities can be taught over several lessons and are suitable for PK/K/1st grades, depending on the level of your children.
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.
