#4085. Months of the Year

Music, level: Kindergarten
Posted Sat Jul 21 03:21:03 PDT 2007 by S Hawk (s.hawk@hotmail.com).
Materials Required: tune of "Frere Jaques"
Activity Time: 5 min.
Concepts Taught: learning the order and names of all 12 months

This an easy song to remember and will be stuck in your head for hours!!

I incorporated this into my morning activities which include calender, weather, counting, etc.
Most calender concepts are interpruted through music and singing. I start with pointing to the calender and the month poster and ask which month
we are currently in (after the 1st few weeks they responde before you que). I encourage them to recite in unison. After we begin the song and they are instructed to clap on the current month once and continue singing.
