"Mole Music" by David McPhail
Mole has always led a simple life, but he begins to think
that something is missing. When he hears a violin playing
for the first time, he longs to make beautiful music. At
first, Mole can only make horrible screeching noises on the
new violin he gets, but he practices and practices. Finally,
his patience and dedication are rewarded. Mole creates a
magical gift that unbeknownst to him has the power to
erase hatred from the hearts of all who hear his music.
"Zin! Zin! Zin! a Violin" by Llyod Moss
With mournful moan and silken tone,itself alone comes
ONE TROMBONE...Then a trumpet joins in to become
a duet; add a French horn and voila! you have a trio -- and
on it goes until an entire orchestra is assembled on stage.
Lloyd Moss's iresistible rhymes and Marjorie Pricemans's
energetic illustrations make beautiful music together -- a
masterpiece that is the perfect introduction to musical
instruments and musical groups, and a counting book that
redefines the genre.
Have M&M's along with a healthy snack like yogurt.
Introduce the letter "M." Explain that today's topic is "music," and that "music" begins
with the "m" sound. Have three "m" items in a "Letter Bag." For instance, place a small
toy motorcycle, a small milk carton, and money in the bag. Give children clues about
Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin by Lloyd Moss. Talk for a moment about
which instruments the children liked best and why. Play a short
piece of fast music. Play a short piece of slow music. (Classical
music is best.) Discuss how each type of music made the children
feel. Briefly discuss tempo. Sing a song the children all know (such
as "Row, Row, Row Your Boat,) very slowly. Then sing it very fast.
Have fun with it!
Music & Movement:
Using either the same music from Circle Time or different if
preferred, let children draw to the sound of the music. Give
each child a large piece of blank paper and two brightly
colored oil pastels. Make sure each child has plenty of space.
Play each type of music, using a different color for each
piece. Encourage children to make marks on their paper to
the tempo. Afterward, compare the types of lines and marks
the children drew.
Feel the Beat
Use Metronome and rhythm sticks to
make rhythms with a set tempo.
Teach children "Miss Mary Mack"
rhyme. If they have trouble with the
jump rope, consider letting them jump
over the rope while it's on the ground
(either in a line, a circle, etc.)
"Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack
All dressed in black, black, black
With silver buttons, buttons, buttons
All down her back, back, back.
She asked her mother, mother, mother
For fifty cents, cents, cents
To see the elephant, elephant, elephant
Jump the fence, fence fence.
He jumped so high, high, high
He touched the sky, sky, sky
And he didn't come back, back, back
Till the fourth of July, -ly, -ly!"
Provide various wind-up clocks or any clocks
that tick. Explore the differences in tempos
when several are ticking at once.
"Mole Music" by David McPhail
Talk with the children about how playing music well takes
practice. Ask children how playing an
instrument might make them feel. How might it make
others feel? How do they think music can make people,and
the world, better? How do they thin kmusic makes God
feel? Who created music and why?
|Bible Verse Bracelets:
”Sing for joy to God our
Discuss this verse: explain
reasons why we praise God,
ways we can praise Him, and
talk about the sounds the
instruments in the verse
might have made.
"Praise Him, Praise Him
All Ye Little Children."
Handwriting Practice: M is for Music
This is an optional handwriting worksheet for

Optional Bible Verse Copywork
If you have older children in your class
or your home, this makes a great
handwriting practice as children copy
the bible verse from Psalm 81:1 and
color the picture of the choir.
Print up these stringed instruments with
bible verses and let children practice
their fine motor skills by lacing them up
|M is for Miracle
This is a Bible Coloring
Page of Jesus and the
miracle he preformed
with the fishes and bread.
|Make Musical Triangles
Use 18-gauge or thicker copper wire, silver, or brass wire (sold
at crafting stores,) and let children bend into triangles. Watch children closely to
prevent cuts and scrapes. Consider having an adult place a small piece of electrical
or other tape over cut ends of wire. Use a smaller gauge wire to make the hanger
at the top of the triangle (show children how to bend it into decorative shape.)
Use about an eight inch length of metal wire (the thickest gauge you can find,) to
make the "tapper." Bend its ends to make decorative curly-cues.
Have someone who plays
percussion instruments come in to
make a demonstration.
Praise The Lord Shaker
This is a fun little craft where children can make their
own musical shaker. Color and cut out the printable and
affix to the back of a paper plate. Join another paper
plate to the back to create a pocket (staple around the
edges). Fill the pocket with beans or other materials, then
staple up the opening. Let children shake them during
praise and worship time.
