Fall Activities for Preschool

Music Every Day: Back to School
Many early childhood teachers would like to have more music in the classroom. With so many other subjects to plan, taking the time to do the necessary planning for music can take a low priority. If the school has a music teacher the class usually gets to see him or her once a week, but what if that teacher came in daily? Music Every Day lets you be the music teacher using simple and piggy back songs. Back to School Week helps to start the year off right with songs to help establish routines and learn names. There are also simple movement and instrument songs to help the teacher encourage fun and enjoyment of music.
