Welcome to the first in a series of music books written and published by Mini Minstrels. Whether you are a nursery, pre-school, school, parent or whether you want to become your own early years music practitioner, then our books will enable you to deliver fun and educational, themed music lessons.
The lesson plans within are easy to follow, they cover many of the topics and learning goals for the Early Years Foundation Stage and they will enable you to run fun and engaging music classes whether you are musical or not!
‘All Aboard - First Stop for Mini Minstrels’ contains a cross section of lesson plans from all our other books. These have been carefully selected to provide you with a wide variety of themes that can be run throughout the year and will provide you with elements that will fit in with your own learning topics in your own establishments. The lesson plan themes are:
Tea and Cakes
“This book is an attractive resource to have on your shelf. It is fun, easy to use and compliments the ’Early Years Foundation Stage’. Any member of staff can pick up the book and use it with a group of children, from babies to pre-school age children. They have the comfort of knowing they have met the development needs and interests of the children. It is a very good lending tool for parents, as a way for them to become involved with their child’s learning. The book is fantastic for those who may not be confident with using instruments or singing. Our children have become very creative since having regular ‘Mini Minstrels’ sessions, they love the ‘Hello’ and ‘Goodbye’ songs and it has been heart warming to watch our children grow in confidence and ability to join in with a group and become the creative, confident, rhythmic children at our day care setting”.
