Playing with the Classics 2
Music Masterworks for Children
by Peggy D. Bennett
Ages 3 - 9
This is a collection of classroom-tested creative ideas for movement, stories, and listening activities using music masterworks with preschool through primary-age children. Fully reproducible and designed for experienced music teachers or those with little musical background, the playful lessons give children a chance to sing, move, and act while they listen to the music of great composers.
Most of the activities begin with a story or storymaking to give children a reason to be curious about the music. Then the playlets capitalize on the story. For each music selection, lesson activities are intended to be apportioned over several (4 or more) meeting times. The repetition, especially varied repetition, is key in allowing the children to be comfortable with the music and activities.
Each lesson provides recording information, lesson segments (categories of activities used), story, storymaking, singing and moving, composer information, music information, and score reading.
