5. Music Activities help promote and encourage the children’s listening skills, creative expression and social interaction. When music is used, children are able to explore sound, volume, tempo and rhythm. (There are many educational concepts taught through music out there that fit the curriculums of today which produce the rhythm and movements that children need to build on.) Here are 3 samples of my music found on William Janiak’s You Tube.
Try “7 Days in the Week” (Sit-Down Activity)as an example:
Try “Do You Like Foods?” (Sit Down Activity)
Try “Keep Moving” (Up Activity)
Remember, a child who is encouraged to enjoy and learn from music during the preschool years is a child who is likely to have a well-developed sense of creativity. Music actually helps the child learn all kinds of different things that you might not at first associate with music.
