Need some help with children and music
Alright ive been thinking my brain to death, and only come up with poopy ideas.
I need to be observed doing some kind of musical activity with the children, I told the class teacher this and she said (in her kindness) ill let you decide what activity to do (aaarhhggggggg!!!!!)
Ive never done this before, I have an idea what to do, well what instruments I want to use, but how to use them is what is driving me mad.
The only semi decent idea I came up with, but which I dont like is singing the rhyme 10 fat sausages, and in time with "pop" and "bang" use an intrument, but I think the idea sux, it isnt fun.
Basically I'm looking for ideas of something I can do with 3/4 4-7 year olds, probibly only using some maraccas and little hand drums. Just hitting it in time doesnt seem exciting enough, there doesnt have to be any songs, just something exciting.
I havent found anything which is free AND suitable.
Many things are based on american grades which I dont understand.
Actually where posible no singing, I HATE HATE HATE singing.
