Adapting to pre-school curriculums: Insects & Bugs and Community Helpers
One of my venues for music therapy is at Step By Step Edu-Play http://stepbystepeduplay.com and here, one of my roles is to design interventions that coincide with the month’s curriculum. You can adapt any song that your kiddos already know to educate further about that topic! Here are some examples…
Curriculum: Insects & Bugs
Song: Five Green and Speckled Frogs
Adaptation: Choose various bugs that frogs could eat with laminated picture cards to provide visual examples
Curriculum: Community Helpers
Song: The Wheels on the Bus
Adaptation: Substitute the lyrics, “the wheels on the bus” to “the wheels on the firetruck/police car/ambulance”, or “the stethoscope on the doctor”, or “the teacher in the classroom”, etc.
Keep tune, more adaptations for various curriculum topics to come! Or if you have one that you’re currently working with, comment below.
