Planning For Music In Pre School


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hi there

Would anyone be able to help me with a link to planning music in pre school - I'm sure I saw this topic discussed here before where someone mentioned a good resource pack they used, but I have been unable to find it again. I'm looking to buy some kind of package with pre school progressive lesson plans in it - if there is such a thing!!

 

Thanks

I have just bought the Sally Featherstone Little book of dance with a CD.

 

There are some lovely ideas in the book and the CD has some good pieces of music to move as you like to.

 

The tracks are suitable for adapting to your own particular needs ( we used it alongside Handa's suprise) and the book contains ELG's which is always helpful

Hi Goldilocks,

Yes, Music Express is the scheme I have bought recently; some structured lesson plans for FS and loads of songs, etc. CDs and CDrom included. It's from A&CBlack and it's £29.99. Quite pricy, but I've based a two year FS music programme around it, adding other bits and pieces from elsewhere. I'd really recommend it as a starting point.

The other publication I use quite a bit is Action Kids, by Val Sabin. Some great musical extracts to move to.

I just wanted to say that we using 'Music Express' to and is fantastic.

Children and staff love it, it is interesting songs and activities in there, where you not covering just music but math concept, physical, social skills, etc.

You can get it on Amazon for £23-24. Normally cost about £30( I think) :D

Is Music Express suitable for two year olds? I have mixed age groups, would it be suitable for whole group sessions (ages 2-4andhalf). Keyworker groups would be smaller but still mixed age groups or would people suggest splitting childen up into smallish groups by age.

 

I want to plan a weekly music session and also feel I will need a progressive music programme (probably that fits over two years)

Also going to have a physical skills session (advice from physiotherapists)and a dance session (weekly, using Sally Featherstone book and others) and the other two days probably story sessions. We still have daily circle time sessions.

 

Advice greatly welcomed.

Thanks, Louise.

Louise,

 

I would be really interested in learning more about what you are doing and the resources you are using. I am hoping to put something similar in place after the summer but feel overwhelmed by the number of 'new' activities I will need to introduce (As we will be going from 3 sessions to 5 sessions a week hopefully).

Hi Beau

 

Haven't got much further with ideas yet. I have TOP Tots and TOP Start resource cards (link to Bto3 and FSD) and equipment and will use these for physical activities but also waiting for specialist advice from physiotherapists but would be happy to share plans once I have some written.

 

We use gymbo (it's american - gymboree) and stickykids (bit too fast paced) tapes at the moment but I'm getting fed up with playing the same tapes. Although are still popular with the children.
