More Than Singing: Discovering Music in Preschool and Kindergarten.
Moomaw, Sally
This book contains over 100 music activities to help teachers, child care providers, and parents bring the joy, theory, and practice of music to young children. An introductory chapter is followed by chapters on songs, rhythm, instruments, music centers, movement, music throughout the day, and group times. Chapters 2 through 8 each contain two sections--answers to questions that teachers frequently ask and activities that help children construct knowledge about sound and music. Photographs of instruments and whole-language extensions accompany guidelines on how to construct the materials. The cassette tape that accompanies the book contains all of the songs and rhythms described in the activities. The book suggests ways that music can be used for exploring multicultural dimensions in curriculum. Suggestions are also given for modifying music activities for children with disabilities. A "Resource Information" section lists the books and recordings mentioned in each chapter. (LPP)
