Hello preschool teachers! It’s Megan from Piano Preschool here, and today I’m sharing 1 fun way to engage those short attention-span-students and maximize the learning potential of your preschool lesson time.
Teaching Preschoolers can be a challenge. They’re wiggly and distracted from A-Z in point 2 seconds. But, they also contain so much more enthusiasm and excitement than many of their older counterparts and that’s ours to harness as their teachers. I try to think like a preschooler, realize that they’re going to get restless sitting. It’s essential to provide developmentally appropriate ways for little ones to continue learning based around piano and musical concepts, while off-the-bench! Today I’m sharing how I re-boot preschoolers from zero concentration by introducing crescendo + decrescendo as a large motion, ear-training exercise! All you’ll need is a scarf or scrap of fabric, a way to play ocean wave sounds and a piece of paper to draw the crescendo + decrescendo symbols. I think you’ll LOVE it!
Thanks for bearing with me on my first ever Facebook LIVE! I was a little nervous, but I can’t stop now because I have so many fun activities to share! Next up is: Tucker Turtle Hand Position Song For Preschool Piano Lessons.
