Tick, Tock Cuckoo Clock
This little rhythmic song will help your students learn to keep a steady beat as they dance and sing. The musical beat is the building block to all music. Once your students learn to identify this using songs about musical beat, they can move on to learning other music theory concepts and have a better understanding of the music they hear in their world. Using preschool songs about rhythm will help students learn to internalize musical beat. In turn, this will improve gross motor skills, spatial awareness, and will teach students to listen for musical cues. Encourage your students to count along and anticipate what number is next. This will give them a chance to practice their counting skills and prepare them for math later on in their education.
