Full Session Description

ICEBREAKER: Show on projector screen:

Choose 2 topics on screen and write down the song name and artist if you know it. Ask to share one with the group.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tJYN-eG1zk star at 30 seconds mark WE WILL ROCK YOU by: QUEEN YouTube clip (a song from my childhood and needs to be played LOUD) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qoMyHy-JFFQ start at 1:15 DON’T GO CHASING WATERFALLS by: SALT N PEPPA you tube clip (a song I never get tired of) This would build a sense of how music builds community and can change our mindset of the daily grind to focus on our topic.

Isn’t it interesting how you can recall the lyrics and other people can join in too and it can change your whole attitude? You can feel the music inside you.

Jump right in with power point INTRO OF OBJECTIVES

Objective 1: Explain how music helps children learn and grow: According to science daily “theorists advocate that music underlies the ability to acquire language.” "Infants listen first to sounds of language and only later to its meaning," Distinguishing between the different sounds of instruments, the rhythms and patterns.“the most critical learning period in every individual's musical life: birth to age five.” Language, Music, and the Brain : A Mysterious Relationship

Objective 2: Identify what domains music can relate to in an ECE setting. Have you ever seen a baby or a toddler dance?! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1v2uzL4El0

  • Show video and have providers write down what learning domains do they see that the children can gain from music. Have a group discussion and use chart paper that’s labeled with each learning domain. Hang up eat page as the providers call it out. PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT AND MOTOR SKILLS, SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT, APPROACHES TO PLAY AND LEARNING, COMMUNICATION, LANGUAGE AND LITERACY, COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT (MATH, SCIENCE, SOCIAL STUDIES, CREATIVITY). What skills or techniques within each domain did we see? Explain that this was in the privacy of their own home and that in the classroom we will not be listening to Shakira. What is developmentally appropriate? What techniques can we use in the classroom to promote development using music? Basic kid’s songs that may seem old to us are brand new and exciting to young children. Gelds resource about intentional lesson planning including music and movement to develop-https://youtu.be/pF5cV1Bn54E?t=510

  • Has song lyrics by subject and song sample to get the tunes-http://www.songsforteaching.com/lb/literacymusic.htm

Objective 3:Chart a variety of activities that enable children to develop in all domains using music. Hand out papers with one learning domain on it. One for each small group. Provide time for small groups to come up with an activity and share it with the group. I will document their activities on one paper/board to have as a visual reference. Do you have any favorites? Rafffi, Dr. Jean, Becky Bailey, the learning stations, etc…..

Objective 4: Put in to practice creating a lesson plan demonstrating how to use music as a learning tool. Handout for each participant: Lesson plan template from GELDS

Incorporate the GELDS teacher toolbox resource and activities.

PEACH RESOURCE- http://www.peach.decal.ga.gov/app/lesson-plan EXPLORE LINK helps plan activities with music and song clips included that matches up with GELDS

Show how to use this tool and how we can teach using music all times during the day. Explain that this is just one way children learn and that making sure to teach children individually and to their best learning styles that is developmentally appropriate.

I hope everyone had a great time today brainstorming together how we can educate the children in our care using more fun, active, musical activities.
