Teaching Procedure

Song Used: Time for Music

1 Sing the Opening Song "Time for Music"

Sing Time for Music with the lyrics video.

Count the beats at the end of each verse.
Count the beats out loud.

Think up new ways that you could keep a beat, and sing your new verses.

Numeracy: Counting is numeracy! Cut out 8 hearts and have children tap on the hearts as they count. Take 2 away. Have them count the hearts now - 1-2-3-4-5-6.
In a study at Northwestern University, researchers have linked the ability to keep a beat to reading and language skills.
