I love to explore different countries and cultures though music. I’ve found that music is a great way to introduce some children to new cultures and celebrations, while providing others with a sense that their own culture is represented and appreciated.
I’m super excited to share my Mexico and Cinco de Mayo lesson plan.
This is a fun movement-based music class lesson plan meant to introduce children to Mexico and/or Cinco de Mayo celebrations. This lesson plan has a few Cinco de Mayo activities, but can also be used all year round as a lesson plan about Mexico and Mexican culture. It was designed for PreK and Kindergarten aged kids, but lower elementary kids love these activities too! This lesson plan contains a few bilingual activities.
This Mexico and Cinco de Mayo lesson plan was designed for movement-based preschool music classes for kids ages 0-5. All of the activities and songs are meant to encourage early developmental milestones to set kids up for success in future music learning.
I strive to keep lesson plans simple and manageable for teachers so that you don’t have to spend a lot of time learning new things or figuring out activities.
This lesson plan includes 10 activities that can easily fill a 30-minute preschool music class. It’s very flexible so you can easily rearrange the order or substitute other activities to suit your own situation.
The full lesson plan is available in my TeachersPayTeachers store, but here are some of the highlights:
- 5 easy sing-along songs representing Mexican culture
- Sheet music and lyrics for those 5 songs
- 4 diverse songs to add to your playlist that will appeal to young kids
- Specific instructions on how to use all of the songs and activities with kids ages 0-5
- Carefully ordered activities to keep your students engaged and to help your class flow smoothly
