Kids LOVE water, so it’s a great theme to explore in preschool music class. There are a lot of directions you can go with water – rain, oceans, swimming, bath time, boats and so much more! My Splish, Splash: Water and Rain lesson plan has some really unique and fun activities that preschoolers love!
This lesson plan was designed to fill a 30-minute preschool music class. I have a knack for keeping things simple, so there isn’t tons of new music to learn or complex activities to figure out. I love using piggy back songs and other familiar elements to create a simple, cohesive class.
As with all of my lesson plans, I design this one for movement-based preschool music classes to help kids engage with motor skills, coordination and other movement milestones they are working on. My goal is to prepare them and set them up for success in future music lessons. And, of course, there is a heavy emphasis on a having fun and letting kids express themselves through music.
This lesson plan would also be a good time to include this activity for Rain, Rain Go Away.
You can find the full water-themed lesson plan in my TeachersPayTeachers store, but here are the highlights:
- 10 songs, rhymes and activities using water themes
- 5 songs and chants with printable sheet music or lyric pages
- 4 fun, active songs to add to your preschool music playlist
- A list of water-themed stories to share with your class
- Specific instructions on how to use these 10 songs with kids ages 0-5
- Activities are ordered perfectly to keep kids engaged and interested throughout a 30-minute class
