Opposites is a great theme to explore with preschoolers. There is so much to learn through concepts like fast and slow, high and low, this way and that way. These are not only relevant in their everyday lives, but also so easy to apply to music.
My opposites-themed lesson plan plan features songs and activities to help kids understand and experience opposites.
This lesson plan was designed for movement-based preschool music classes to give kids a chance to practice all of the important developmental milestones that they are learning in their preschool years. It’s a fun way for them to get curious and interested in music and will set them up for success in future music lessons.
There are so many fun songs that feature opposites. It was hard to narrow down which ones to use in this lesson plan!
My goal when creating lesson plans is to keep things as simple as possible. I love using piggy back songs because I find that it can be stressful to have to learn a lot of new, complex music before each class.
The Opposites lesson plan includes 10 activities that can easily fill a 30 minute preschool music class. It’s designed to be flexible so you can easily rearrange activities or substitute in your own ideas as needed.
You can get the full lesson plan in my TeachersPayTeacher store, but here are the highlights:
- 5 easy sing-along songs all about opposites
- Sheet music and lyrics for those 5 songs
- 4 fun 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
