101 More Music Games for Children
More fun and learning with rhythm and song
By Jerry Storms
For ages 6 and up
The games are based on music, song, and dance gathered from different cultures. Includes rhythm games, dance and movement games, card and board games, and musical projects. All games stress humor, challenge, surprise, and cooperation rather than competition.
Many of the games explore the basics of music and facilitate musical development. The accent lies more on the basics of music rather than on the social and creative aspects, which were the focus of 101 Music Games for Children (item 550057). Through playing the games, children learn skills such as spontaneous singing, recognizing rhythms, and structuring sound. Appropriate age levels, times of play, and group size are indicated for each game.
