Suggestions of approaches for the teacher

(Approach 1) Musical Statue

This classic game helps improve many abilities, special attention, and motor skills. Play a song, and when you pause, say: Statues

All students should freeze in position. The student who moves loses.

(Approach 2) In case the school has musical instruments, take students to know them. Allow them to touch and hear their sounds of them, analyzing their differences and similarities. If the school doesn't have musical instruments, organize with the coordination to take students somewhere they have them.

(Approach 3) Music is all around us.

Get as many musical instruments as you can find. Don't you have any? Don't worry, crafting it is more fun. Grab pans, bowls, milk containers - everything you can find. Put buttons or beads inside closed recipients and you have some musical instruments.

(Approach 4) You can also create a band with students. If you want to, invite a music teacher to teach this class a few times in the beginning.

(Approach5) Put on music and grab paper and pencils. Spend time listening and drawing what they are listening to, using shapes, lines, and colors to represent the sounds of musical instruments. Then, ask them why they chose certain shapes and colors and what they represent.

(Approach 6) Take a sound box to class with different classical music played by various instruments. Then, ask students to try and guess which instruments are on each song.

(Approach 7) Organize a dancing contest with the physical education teacher.
