Want a great way to introduce kids to classical music, world music and jazz and tie it all together with songs, rhymes, movement and other activities that build musical skills? That’s what CLASSICS ROCK! CLASSICAL MUSIC FOR YOUNG CHILDREN is all about.
In ABC’S TOGETHER WITH CLASSICAL MUSIC, I suggest 2 storybooks for you to read with selected recordings of classical music playing in the background. This product is unique in that 2 activities reinforce “writing” letters of the alphabet. One uses rhythm sticks with directions for making your own. The other uses yarn which you can purchase at a store like Michael’s.
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 activities in this product include:
1. hearing Classical music, moving to Classical music
2. listening skills
3. steady beat
4. vocalizing and vocal warm-ups
5. creative thinking and designing voice pictures
6. small and large motor coordination
7. eye-hand coordination
8. tactile and kinesthetic experiences with letters of the alphabet
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.
