This experience also suggests to children that singing is a natural part of their lives as they pass the telephone for individual singing. Procedures 1. Sing the song several times for the children. Then, lead them in singing it as a group until they all know it. 2. With the children seated in a circle, pass a toy telephone (which can be simply a u-shaped tube) around.

of children. Example–15 children, you will need 15 circles, 15 squares, and so on. You will also need a cassette or cd with children’s favorite music. Activity: Scatter the plates on the floor in a large area, (you may have 60 plates) making sure to mix them around, don’t put all circles together. Explain to the children to WALK around the plates while the music is playing. DO NOT step on the plates until the music stops and the teacher says “blue circle”, or “red triangle”, or whatever shape and color you have chosen. Each child finds the appropriate plate. Continue the music, stop the music, say a color and shape, and watch the children help each other find the correct plates to step on. Remind the children that they must walk and be careful when stepping on the plates as the plates may slip. The children love this game while they’re learning shapes, colors and listening skills.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
