1 Let's Sing "Welcome to Music"!
Watch the video and sing the echoes.
In this lesson, we will:
Watch the video and say the instrument rhythms and clap right after the teacher.
You'll say the rhythms with the kids on the recording.
Print and colour the Instrument pictures.
The drum and the shaker were played in the rhythm video.
Or save ink and paper and draw and color your own!
Find something in your house to use as a drum or a shaker.
You could use a bucket or a big bowl for a drum.
You could fill a small container with macaroni to make a shaker.
Use your instruments to echo the rhythms or to play along with the songs.
Play the video again and sing along!
When you wash your hands, sing the song twice to make sure you wash for 20 seconds!
Can you create actions to go with the music?
Can you play your instruments with the song?
Listen to the song "She'll be Comin' Round the Mountain".
After hearing verse one, can you sing along with it?
Can you make up actions to go with the song?
Play your instruments along with the song.
Print our and color the Reproducible Book for "She’ll be Comin’ Round the Mountain".
Play the video and read your book along with the song.
Save ink and paper and do the alternate activity - draw and color a picture that shows your favorite part of the song.
Repetition is one of the ways that we learn something well.
Students improve singing on pitch, learn the lyrics and melody better with each repetition.
Students will develop their musicality if you sing, move, play more often!
Keep a list of the songs and activities that you like so you can sing them often.
Assessment may not be required for your school or district.
Your teacher may ask you to email one of the suggested assessments
Parents, Teachers and Administration:
Music education is important for children.
Whether in class or at home, keep our children singing, playing, moving, listening and creating music!
