Music and curriculum – a “win-win” situation for all


!cid_3172757604_597645Infusing curriculum with music is one sure way to heighten targeted academic development. Children acquire skills easily in relationship to what they know.  The songs and rhythms of early childhood spark enthusiasm for learning and build self-esteem.  There are six elements to incorporating music into your daily teaching routine.  How do we effectively incorporate them?

  • Ensure a strong bond between music in the classroom and music at home.
  • Incorporate music use with all elements of  curriculum.
  • Use music to facilitate effective transition times.
  • Steer appropriate classroom behavior with background music.
  • Develop a “Music and Sound Spot”.
  • Allow time each day for movement with music.

Each of these areas will be presented in following posts to allow time for discussion of each separately.  Be sure to look for future posts.

Also, this is a new blog and I would love to hear from you on the types of information you would like to see presented.  Thanks!
