The Preschool Lesson Plan Wizard - Volume 2
Make planning preschool music lessons easy as 1-2-3!
Planning new lessons every week can be overwhelming and time-consuming. I'm here to help you make your lesson planning super simple.
I've organized all of my favorite preschool music resources by theme, each containing thematic music activities perfect for kids ages 0-5.
Each theme contains approximately 25 songs, stories, and music activities to share with young children.
These bundles were intended for you to use as a springboard for your own lesson planning. I'm sure you have plenty of your own ideas up your sleeve to incorporate into each theme and I don't expect you to use everything suggested here. Rather, pick and choose what you need from the themes to make your lessons right for you and your own situation.
I'm assuming that you already have the gist of how to teach a preschool music class and you're just looking for quick ideas and easy-to-implement solutions (but if you're interested in the "how," check out my courses Teach Preschool Music and Preschool Music Lesson Plan Crash Course!).
You can use each theme as a single lesson, or break them apart and use them for multiple lessons with the same themes (remember, repetition is good for young children!). Each theme also helps reinforce a musical concept.
Many of the songs in here are set to familiar tunes your young audience will likely know. The songs on the playlists tend to be fun and engaging, not the same boring standards most people know.
And remember, have fun!
Hello! I'm Megan Desmarais and I'm a Nationally Certified Teacher of Music. I maintain a busy piano studio in Tulsa, OK that includes students of all ages, 0 and up. Teaching preschoolers to love music is one of the highlights of my week. I've seen firsthand how beneficial it has been for my own children to be exposed to structured music time starting at birth. As a piano teacher, my studio is bursting with students who have been learning music their whole lives. They thrive in piano lessons because learning music is already second-nature to them. Whether you're a teacher or a parent, I'd love to help you nurture the littlest musicians.
