Giveaway to Celebrate the Launch of My Musically Montessori Mini-ECourse

HOW ABOUT A FUN WEEK (OR MONTH!) OF MONTESSORI MUSIC ACTIVITIES THAT FIT NICELY WITH THE SEASON? I'M CELEBRATING THE LAUNCH OF MY MINI-ECOURSE WITH A MUSICAL GIVEAWAY! Simply leave a comment at the end of this blog post answering a fun question...


MUSICALLY MONTESSORI: "NUTCRACKER SUITE 
FOR LITTLE KIDS"

My newest eCourse is just about ready for students, and I am celebrating the opening of enrollment (Nov. 1st) for the course with a GIVEAWAY gift certificate to my favorite music store, "West Music.com" 

You can enter to win this gift certificate by leaving your answer to my musical question in the comments at the end of this blog post.

The beautiful music from Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite has been a seasonal mainstay in my music classes for several years now. I love introducing this exciting, and often very familiar, music to children in fun and engaging ways. And, I've come up with lots of ways!

I've been working for months on my full-length eCourse focusing on the instrument families of the Orchestra. During this process, I realized that there is simply too much to cover in a twelve week course! So, I decided to create this little mini-eCourse as a sort of "teaser" for children as a first introduction to the Orchestra and experiences to develop skills in listening and recognizing the music of one of the most famous composers, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

WAYS TO USE THE LESSONS IN THIS MINI-ECOURSE

You can offer these lessons over the course of several weeks by introducing a new lesson each week and then providing follow-up activities as shelf works to reinforce the ideas during the week.

~ You can plan one huge week of jam-packed music fun by offering a lesson each day and filling your environment with the magic of Tchaikovsky's music.

You can offer this Unit during your "Winter Camp" when your regular classes are not in session. This is wonderful for a smaller group of children, especially if you culminate it all with an actual excursion to a matinee performance of the "Nutcracker Ballet Performance". The parents of your group will be more than willing to pay for their children's admission to the event. And, often, your local performing groups give special rates for school (and daycare) groups. 

~This Unit is something you can actually use anytime of year! It is a wonderful way to delve into your Cultural Studies unit on not only Europe, but also this Ballet Suite highlights music from around the world!


WHAT YOU'LL GET FROM TAKING MY eCOURSE
~ Four Easy-to-Follow Sessions with Instructional videos, Lesson Plan downloads and Mp3 music for each Lesson. On-line training with me to take you step-by-step through these activities to bring to your little ones. You'll learn my secrets to success!

~ Printables for creating Shelf Works to reinforce each lesson. 

~ Templates for the children to create stick puppets, masks, and crowns for a "Performance" or impromptu drama play.  

~ PDF Download for making your own picture story book, "The Nutcracker Ballet Story" to go along with the mp3 music while you read the story to the children

    1. Aren't they fun to sing together? Thanks, Jeni, for your sweet comment. You are the first one to respond!

  2. The Sound of Music is an annual Christmas Eve tradition, and even though my children are older and have seen it about 15 times, I still guilt them into sitting down with me to watch it!

    1. Too funny! The music in that movie is amazing and it's okay to guilt your kids every once in a while.

  3. I'm from Spain but we're living in the US, so we're trying to learn both English and Spanish Christmas carols. This year, since my 4yo is interested in the Ukulele, we will try to learn how to play Silent Night/Noche de Paz and sing it in both languages :D

    1. This is very charming! Are some of the Spanish carols the same melody as English ones? Your 4 yr old sounds delightful! My 2 yr old grandson carries around his purple ukelele everywhere and calls it his guitar. Do you know this site for learning simple chords on the ukulele with Madeline Potts: http://www.madelinelpots.com/ukulele-tutorials/

  4. I was born in Colombia, but I've lived in the US for the past 4 years. Christmas for us is staying up late on the 24th, having a family dinner, opening presents at midnight, and doing all types of fun things with the family. One of the things we love to do is turn on the radio online to one of our favorite radio stations from back home and we dance away!

    1. Many of the carols have a strong beat and are great for children to play along to using rhythm instruments or homemade jingle bells! Thanks for your comment.

  6. Hi Carolyn! This is the second time I try to post. Hope this time it goes through... I am originally from Colombia, but I've lived in the US for the past 4 years. Christmas for us is celebrated in the 24th, with a big family dinner, fun activities, and opening presents at midnight. We love to tune online into our favorite radio station from back home, and dance away!
