Follow Friday: Strings, Keys and Melodies

Image

Just a quick post today as I run around trying to get a million little things done!

Today’s follow is a couple ladies who blog to “provide parents and teachers ideas and techniques they can use to cultivate the  love of music in their students. We want people to love music and use it as a way of expressing their feelings and emotions”.  In the short time that I have followed them, they have provided me with great ideas, valuable resources and links to some good reading regarding young children and music education.

If you are looking to bring some music into your day-to-day lives, these ladies do a regular feature, Finger Play Fun Day, where they teach and give ideas on how to implement a new finger play.  I haven’t done many of these myself while teaching, but the few I have managed have been extremely well-loved by kids.  They teach kids rhythm and touch on such important early childhood skills as patterning, predictability, rhyming and fine motor control.  I believe they do a different one every week, and they are archived for your access.

Some other neat things that they have touched on are music and water, babies and music, the benefits of music, classical music games, homemade instruments…they really do have a lot of neat stuff on their blog.  They would be well worth checking out:
