Music Morning: Spring and Spring Flowers


Music Morning Lesson Plan

As people come in, have them sign in, remove shoes and find a spot on the floor…should be in a large circle.

    • Hello Song   (Wiggles & Giggles Cd #1 *Kindermusik cd I got when my children participated in Kindermusik* )
    • Introduction of theme: “Spring & Spring Flowers”
    • Read storyPlanting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert
    • Active Movement Song:  “The Seeds Grow” tune of “Farmer in the Dell” (see below)
    • Teacher Instrument Exploration: first I used a duck whistle and then discussed other animals we hear about during spring. Then we used the guiro to tie into frogs.
    • Kids Instrument Exploration: rhythm sticks **Played our instruments to the song “Ring Around the Rosey”
    • Put all instruments away
    • Circle Song: “Ring-A-Ring of Roses” tossed a bouquet of fake flowers around the circle to the music…tried fast, slow, high and low
    • Active Movement Song:       “My Busy Garden” from CD Bugs, Bugs, Bugs! We acted out the movement of the bugs.
    • Mommy & Me Quiet Reading Time: Kids get books to read to mom and they cuddle while listening to music.  Played “Spring Song” by Mendelssohn
    • Put books away
    • Goodbye Song  (Wiggles & Giggles Cd #2 Song # 26 *again the Kindermusik cd*)




(I made a storyboard to go with the song.  The lyrics are posted on the back of the appropriate pages.)
