I love teaching music during the month of October. There are just so many fun songs and activities that go along with cooler weather, holidays, apples, leaves, and of course pumpkins! In Kindergarten we learned a song called "Pumpkin, Pumpkin." We added some movement, an instrument, and a little game. The song tells about a pumpkin becoming a jack-o-lantern, so at the end of the song, one student was the "face" leader and got to have everyone copy his/her best jack-o-lantern face. Then, another student got to play on our Chinese gong. This is a great way to introduce one of the more unique instruments in the music room and talk about how to be nice to our instruments. Here are a few pictures and a video of one class in action!
