Music and Circle Time

Music and Circle Time
Using Music, Rhythm, Rhyme and Song

104 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Music and Circle Time follows the same popular and accessible style as Margaret Collins' established and successful Circle Time series. This book provides user-friendly classroom activities to engage young children.

It uses Circle Time techniques to help children use and learn about:

  • Rhythm, jingles, raps and chants
  • Songs
  • Instruments
  • Ring games
  • Music, art and story projects

The enjoyable activities can also enhance learning of other aspects of the curriculum. There is evidence that children who are familiar with a wide-ranging repertoire of rhymes and songs learn to read earlier.

Using this book all teachers will be able to implement music in their Circle Time sessions in a confident and creative manner.
