The back to school season is underway…are you as swept up in the craziness as I am? Not only am I getting ready to send my son to kindergarten next week, but I’m also in the midst of preparing for new groups, classes, and music therapy sessions.
I’ll be using my September session plan in many of those settings, and I hope you can put it to good use as well!
This month, I’m incorporating drums, scarves, and bells/tambourines along with plenty of opportunities for improving social skills, fine and gross motor movement, verbalization, and much more.
Members of Listen & Learn Plus: you’ll find all session plans in the membership portal.
The September session plan includes 10 goal-based songs (mp3, instrumental track, lyrics/chords) along with a facilitation guide for each song, which will allow you to implement a cohesive 30-45 minute music experience. Grab it for yourself for just $10.
Since there is one session plan for each month, do you use the same plan each week for the month? I work at a school teaching music, and I am a music therapist and am wondering if your monthly plans will work for me. I teach a class once a week.
Hi Scott – I do use many of the same songs and materials each week throughout the month, building on them as students learn the songs and are able to meet the objectives (or get closer to doing so). However, I usually switch at least a few out from week to week for some novelty and to keep them on their toes.
