Preschool Science Concepts

In this video, children learn Preschool Science Concepts through Interactive Music and Movement. Interactive music is perhaps the most powerful tool for early learning. We use interactive music and movement to create opportunities for children to learn science, math, phonemic awareness, Spanish and to develop social skills, impulse control and so much more. Scientific evidence proves that early music education boosts academic performance and school readiness. Conclusion: Every young child deserves to benefit from early childhood music education.

Make it bounce up and down
Now tap the other foot, make it go to town
Wiggle your shoulders, turn yourself around

Animals on the Move

Animals on the Move Audio:

 

Animals on the Move chords: Am Em7 B, A G# F#

Instructions:
During this song, the children will be crawling, hopping and flying around the group space. Make a point about the “Invisible Bubble” in your introduction and be alert for any bumping or pushing during the song. When children do bump or push their friends, gently remind them to move where there is room for their body. Track #4

Intro:
Tell the children, “Now we get to move our bodies like different kinds of animals. The first one is a spider crawling on the floor. You can do the backwards crab crawl or a frontward crawl. But first, put your invisible bubble around your whole body. That means that your body will not bump or touch your friends body. Make sure that you move your body where there is room to go without bumping your friends.”

Lyrics:
Spiders are creeping X4
Creep around the circle and stop
Snakes that slither X4
Slither round the circle and stop
Dolphins are swimming X4
Swim around the circle and stop
Birds are flying X4
Fly around the circle and stop
_________________________
Now think of all the animals in the whole world and move you’re body like any animal that you choose… here we go!
Animals are on the move, on the move
Be any animal that you choose, that you choose
In the forest, in the trees, in the jungle, or in the sea
Animals are on the move
I see some tigers that are crawling in the jungle
I see whales swimming in the ocean
I see all kinds of animals
Now turn into an elephant
Elephants walking X4
Walk around the circle and stop

Riding On A Train

Riding on a Train Audio:

 

Riding On A Train chords: G C D

Instructions:
You are going to form a train with the children. You will be the leader. Choose one child to follow you and show the children how to line up with their hands on the shoulders of the child in front of them. Lead the train around the room. It’s fun to lead the train on a route around the tables and furniture in the room. Track #3

Intro:
Tell the children they will be riding on a train. Say “There are three sounds to make in this song: the whistle goes woo! woo!” Have the children repeat the sound. “The conductor says all aboard!” Have the children repeat it. “The bell goes ding, ding, ding!” Have the children repeat the bell sound.

Lyrics:
Riding on a train X2
Goin’ so fast,
Riding on a train
The whistle blows “woo, woo” X3
Riding on a train
Riding on a train X2
Goin’ so fast,
Riding on a train
The conductor says “All aboard!” X3
Riding on a train
Riding on a train X2
Goin’ so fast,
Riding on a train
The bell goes “ding, ding, ding!”X3
Riding on a train
(slower)
Now were goin’ up the hill
Riding on a train
Climbing up the hill
Riding on a train,
Now were at the top
Riding on a train
(faster)
Now were going down the hill
Riding on a train
The whistle blows “woo, woo” X3
Riding on a train
The conductor says “All aboard!” X3
Riding on a train
The bell goes “ding, ding, ding!” X3
Riding on a train
(slow down)
Now were coming to the station,
Riding on a train,
coming to the station
Riding on a train…..
