The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Hello everyone.

My name is Christoph Joerg,

I am a music and English teacher in china. I would like to use this discussion board to share ideas about music education.

Currently I am teaching 4 and 5 year olds recorder. I had to adjust my curriculum quite a bit from my previous recorder students who were slightly older. With the younger ones I am challenged to make the class even more active, including games and moving activities which of course need to involve the recorder.

These are some of my games / activities that I use in the classroom:

- Walking and trying to play as long as possible and stopping when running out of breath

- Having one student play and the rest dances to the music

- Freeze dance: One student plays, others dance, when the music stops, all have to freeze, the one who moves is out

- I am also planning on renaming the class to "Karate Recorder." By passing certain challenges, students will get a yarn of a certain color around their recorder, just like they get different colored belts until the black belt in karate.

I am curious what others use to make it fun and interesting for the students.

Thanks for sharing! 

Hi Christoph! Those are some great music activites to use with students and recorders. Very engaging and fun. Thanks for sharing with the group :) Hope you find some good feedback here.
