Makin’ Music with Ms. Linda

Makin’ Music with Ms. Linda

Hello Parents!

 

It’s important to me that my lesson plan always coincide with the themes that the teachers have been teaching about that week.  I pride myself in my ability to  link the two, and also to recognize that the teachers and I are a team.  Before each class begins, I ask the children and teachers what their theme is, then I weave songs and comments that relate to the theme into each thing I do during our music time (within reason!).

Here’s what we did:

  • The Hello Song (highlighting musical expression):”The Farm Alarm”
  • Eggs Song:  “Let’s Keep the Rhythm”
  • Sticks Song:  “Music with My Family” (focusing on the woodwind family of instruments) & “Hop Old Squirrel” using the mystery instruments to accompany each verse best.
  • Percussion Play-Along:  World Music
  • Mystery Instrument: All of the percussion instruments from my big grey bin.

I really enjoyed the different versions of “Hop Old Squirrel” that the different groups and I came up with.  They were creative and expressive!

 

Take Care,

Linda Bunting
