I love this month...such a fun time to celebrate love. What do you love? Here are some things I LOVE lately...
...the amazing weather here in Texas...I love having the windows open all night long and going to the park with my sweet kiddos (without jackets!)
...the exuberant kicking of baby #3...did I mention I'm expecting?
...that I have been focusing more on preschool music classes lately and a little less on private lessons...it's a fun season in my teaching life, and my kids love it as well!
...all of my wonderful readers (YOU!) who have continued your interest in my blog and my lesson plans despite my recent occasional presence here :)
...that part of my "nesting" this time around is involving finally getting all of my preschool lesson plans UP in the Teaching Studio Store
, so I can share the love with all of you!
And on that note, I'm so excited to announce a brand new Early Explorers lesson plan, Musical Valentines - just in time for Valentines Day!
This lesson plan is for one 1-hour class and is geared toward 3- and 4-year-olds. It is all about the musical alphabet, and of course the LOVE of music! We talk a lot about how music conveys feelings and emotions, and how much we just plain love it.
In this fun Valentines Day themed lesson plan, children will enjoy learning and singing a cute song about music to Beethoven's "Fur Elise;" will love composing their own Valentines Day song; will be excited to receive a Valentine from a famous composer; and will have fun learning all about the joy of music through song, play, movement, listening and art. It includes many printables, including a student Take-Home Booklet! This lesson plan has 74 pages and is in downloadable e-book format.
One of you lucky readers is going to win a FREE copy of our "Musical Valentines" - just in time for Valentines Day! It would be wonderful for a small group class of young students, an at-home preschool group or any preschool music class.
