Focusing on musical experiences with Colors and Shapes, This is Music! Preschool is a year long curriculum which contains developmentally-appropriate lessons for 2- and young 3-year olds, and lessons for 3- and 4-year olds. Features include a one-page outline format for in-class reference and reproducible pages for quick and easy preparation. Familiar songs or piggy-back tunes set to new lyrics are combined with fresh new songs for thematic continuity - and all the music is included on two CDs! Every lesson links movement to sound and includes the playing of instruments and/or sound-making objects. Also incorporates preschool themes, American Sign Language activities, and lessons directly related to popular children's literature books.
