THE LESSON PLAN
A great music activity to focus and calm the students at the end of a long day.
This is both a focus activity and a music activity. Using a digitized recording of Ravel’s luscious orchestral piece La Habanera, I’ve created a narration ( think “Peter and the Wolf”) that tells the story of Tree and all its wonderful friends - the bird, the butterfly, and the deer.
With your help, students create hand motions for each of the characters. It’s a wonderful activity to use at the end of the day with your child/children or right before nap time.
NOTE: In order to use this lesson plan, you will also need to purchase the recording of Story Time - The Tree.
