Using Music with Head Start Children.
Griffin, Louise
This pamphlet describes the function of music in Head Start programs. Suggestions are made to help children sense motion and develop their self-concepts and motor coordination skills through rhythmic songs and activities. The construction and use of rhythm instruments are suggested as a means of involving mothers in Head Start programs. Certain types of songs are described as aids in teaching language development. Listening to music is suggested as a stimulus to develop auditory discrimination. A few positive and negative suggestions are given to teachers, and a short section emphasizes that a teacher's lack of applied music training does not prevent successful teaching. Along with an extensive bibliography of recordings, background reading, and resource and song books, a list of music publishers and suppliers and their addresses is appended. (JS)
