Are you going to celebrate World Book Day with your children on 6th March? It’s a worldwide celebration of children’s books and reading and marked in over 100 countries around the globe.
Books are such a fun springboard in to all sorts of activities, crafts, play and of course…..music! And now it’s finally stopped raining, why not take them outside and put your outdoor musical instruments to excellent use?
World Book Day is a wonderful opportunity to pair children’s love of music with their love of reading. Integrating children’s literature into music time by adding songs and sound effects to the stories and acting them out during the lesson will add some creative fun – nothing works as well as a good book and some loud noise when it comes to inspiring the imaginations of our children.
Enjoy some seafaring stories and transform your outdoor music area into a pirate ship, or make music to stories, songs and rhymes about mini beasts. The opportunity to bring witches, dragons, and adventures into music lessons is endless.
What a great way to celebrate music, books and reading!
