Rushing Water Lesson Plan & Giveaway!

This morning Nichole and I taught our favorite Early Explorers lesson plan and had such a fun time – and we are super excited that it is now available for purchase in The Teaching Studio Store so you can all enjoy it as well!
“Rushing Water” is a one-hour preschool music class all about water, from rushing rivers and streams to little raindrops. In this class we explore short and long sounds in music. We also learn through Bedrich Smetana’s “The Moldau” that music can tell a wonderful story!
We take a musical journey down a magical river, and through singing, movement and storytelling encounter castles, mermaids, waterfalls and more. Children (and teachers, too!) have a blast with this class. We also use raindrops and rivers to explore short and long in music in lots of hands-on and exciting ways. Today was the perfect day to teach this class, because here in Texas it was cloudy and rainy! I think those short musical raindrops were on the children’s minds as they traveled home from our class!
Would you like to teach this fun class? Our lesson plan is a 73-page downloadable e-book that comes with take-home booklets, templates, tutorials, all of the clipart/flannel board figures you will need, sheet music to four songs, a listening guide for “The Moldau,” and much more! We think you and your little students will love it! Here are a couple more previews and sneak peeks:

We would love to give away a *FREE* copy to a lucky reader! So comment and share away – receive one entry for a comment on this post, and an additional entry for each way you share about this lesson plan – whether it is Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, your blog, etc. Giveaway ends this Friday, February 22 at 10:00 pm Central time.
And for those of you who can’t wait to check out this awesome lesson plan, head on over to The Teaching Studio Store, where there are many great lessons available (and many more to come!!)
