This is the first week all summer that I haven’t led any virtual early childhood/preschool music groups, and I have to say, I’m experiencing a bit of withdrawal. As excited as I was to have a break, I miss seeing those adorable faces on my computer screen, singing and playing along with me.
I’m looking forward to more virtual classes in the fall, but in the meantime, I decided to create a “Best of Summer 2020” music class video not just for my summer families, but for anyone who might enjoy and benefit from it.
In this video, I’m sharing 10 of my favorite songs from those sessions, which include singing, instrument playing, movement, and other interactive elements.
Check out the full-length video right here, and while you’re watching, make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you can catch all my upcoming videos (and view my 150+ existing videos). I’ve also created a song packet which includes the lyrics and chords for those 10 songs, which you can download (for free) right here.
Here are the recommended instruments and props for fully participating in this full-length music class:
- two wooden spoons or pencils (rhythm sticks)
- two metal spoons, a set of keys, or anything that jingles (bells)
- water bottles filled with popcorn, rice or beans (shakers)
- a bin, box, or tupperware container (drum)
- anything else you can think of to help you make music!
I hope you like the video, and feel free to share it with anyone else (families with young children or colleagues who work with this age group) who might find it beneficial, as well!
