Musically Montessori: Let's Play the "Sunflower" Musical Scale Game!

WANT A GUARANTEED SUCCESS IN YOUR PRESCHOOL MUSIC CIRCLE? I'VE CREATED A LITTLE VIDEO OF ONE OF THE ALL-TIME FAVORITES FROM THE MONTESSORI MUSIC ROOM!


"THE CYCLE OF THE SUNFLOWER"  


We've been so enjoying this activity in my Montessori music classes throughout the week! Here is a little excerpt from Kiran's Montessori Preschool featuring Lesson #6 from my eCourse, Musically Montessori: First Twelve Weeks.  



In the video, I demonstrate the activity using an Orff-Schulwerk style glockenspiel. However, in the Montessori classroom, you can use the lovely Montessori brass bells.

It may be a bit of a surprise to hear that even my Kindergarteners through Lower Elementary groups enjoy this sweet little musical scale activity! With the older groups, one of the children actually played up and down the Glockenspiel and the other children sang with me. 

Of course, the younger groups (even the 2 yr olds) responded with: "Again!" 

Later in the lesson, we played bells and moved them upwards while singing up the scale and then downwards while singing down the scale.



Would you like to learn more about setting up your Montessori Music Curriculum for young children? 

Please visit  my eCourse site at this link: Musically Montessori "First Twelve Weeks". 

I'd love for you to join me, along with Montessori educators from all over the world, who are having fun with music in their groups and learning a lot, too!



Not only will you have 12 weeks of lesson videos, printables, and lesson plans at your finger tips, you will also have the wonderful mp3 downloads from Classical Fun SingAlongs that are an exclusive just for the students in this eCourse!

Looking forward to singing and playing music with you!
