Song Books from PreKinders
These printable song books can be used in the classroom while singing songs.

How to Tell the Difference Between the Rhythm & the Beat from Lets Play Music
If you don’t play an instrument or haven’t had music lessons before, it can be a bit confusing to understand the difference between the rhythm and the beat in music. The beat is the steady pulse that you feel in the tune, like a clock’s tick. It’s what you would clap along to, or what you feel you want to tap your foot to. The rhythm is the actual sound of the notes, which in a song would be the same as the words.
Christmas Rhythm Game from Lets Play Music
These Christmas Rhythm Game flash cards can be used in various ways according to the age and musical experience of the child. Below are some suggestions of how best to use them for three age groups from 2 yrs to 5 years+ (the ability for each age group should of course always be flexible according to each child). You don’t need any extra equipment, although some wooden tone blocks or a tambourine might come in handy – and if you need a little help with reading the music notes, take a look at Introducing The Note Family from the First Piano Lessons Series. These games work very well as accompanying activities to our Kids’ Songs For Christmas series, where you may recognise all the familiar characters!
These cards show the position of each of the notes used in the 8 note handbell set. They are color coded to match the bells. Later I will make a new set that do not have color.

Safari Ltd. Musical Instruments Giveaway & Free Montessori Printables from Imagine Our Life
I have created a set of free musical instrument 3-part cards to correspond with Safari Ltd’s Musical Instruments TOOB. Because I had room for one more card on my printout, I included an oboe. I used an oboe necklace charm (and my real oboe!) for matching. You could set that card aside when doing object matching.
