Horn Activities for Preschoolers
As an Experience Early Learning Blog Ambassador, we receive the Experience Early Learning preschool curriculum in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, our opinions on amazing things for children are 100% our own. Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best judgement when planning activities for your children.
We're still enjoying our lessons about the orchestra from Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) and today we're learning about Horns.
We kept reviewing the letter P by thinking of words that start with P. Another fun activity focusing on the letter P today was creating rhythm when making the /p/ sound.
The preschoolers also went and located objects in the room that were green or rectangular and bonus points for anyone who could find objects that were both!
Then we went over horns today. Since one of our teachers can play the trombone, she played for the kids. We listened to loud sounds and quiet sounds.
For centers, we did some activities from the journals that were included in our preschool curriculum kit from Experience Early Learning, matched instrument cards, and listened and danced to horns in various songs from a movie.
During gross motor time, we took turns pretending to be conductors of a percussion orchestra! This was also a great opportunity for dramatic play.
The kids took turns making big movements and small movements to lead their classmates playing loud and soft on percussion instruments.
Before lunch we listened to a story about Mississippi blues and helped build the story with real character pieces.
Don't forget to check back next week to see what we're up to with our Cozy Winter Senses Theme from Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time).
