Happy Autumn! Who else loves this season?? It definitely is my favorite. Since I live in San Antonio and we sadly don't get much of an autumn here (except for the constant sound of acorns hitting and rolling off our roof), I thought we could bring in the season with a little Vivaldi, pumpkins, and falling leaves (even if they aren't real leaves...). I have been working hard getting our next Early Explorers preschool music class lesson plan all ready to go...just in time for the season!
This was one of the first Early Explorers lesson plans that Nichole and I wrote, and we had such a great time planning it and especially coming up with the song lyrics! It is such a fun lesson - I love that the children get to dance around to Vivaldi's Autumn with giant fall leaves, I love the fun Carl Kolling piano piece we use to talk about raking leaves and jumping in the pile, and I just love this theme! Here is a little sneak peek of the objectives for this lesson plan:
This lesson plan does have some slight similarities to the "Spectacular Spring!" plan, because we wrote the Spring plan to take Autumn's place when we taught our class in the Spring :) I think the two lesson plans complement each other nicely (and we've thought all along how neat a Vivaldi's Four Season's lesson plan pack would be...). I hope you and your students enjoy bringing in the fall season with this lesson! It is 43 pages long and includes a student Take-Home Booklet, three songs, lots of clipart, templates and tutorials, and more. Book is in downloadable e-book format and will be available for instant download after payment. Purchase here or in The Teaching Studio Store.
