Musicplay Kindergarten Teacher's Guide & Digital Resources

Themes & Variations


Musicplay is a play-based program. There are many singing games in all grade levels. Most of the game songs are also music reading songs. The sequencing of reading songs within the program aligns with both Orff and Kodaly processes.
There are more than 100 musical examples in Musicplay Kindergarten that include game songs, action songs, singalong songs, folksongs, multicultural music, concept and theme songs, choral arrangements, and holiday songs. Orff arrangements and creating suggestions for teachers are included for 34 songs.

In the Musicplay teacher’s guide, you will find the scope and sequence for the grade, month outlines, Week at a Glance, vocal scores for the songs, suggestions for teaching, and game directions. The month outlines include the song lists, an outline of the lesson in the Lesson Module, and additional options.

The Week at a Glance helps the teacher to quickly see the song list and online resources for songs. It’s easy to see options for students to sing, play, move, listen, read, write and create. There are assessment suggestions, and lists of interactive activities and printables linked to the songs. The Week at a Glance includes the outlines for the weekly Lesson Modules for Kindergarten on Musicplayonline.

This is a program for BOTH the Kindergarten classroom teacher and the music specialist with a real emphasis on integrating learning through music. With more than 100 songs with audio performance/accompaniment tracks, this is a comprehensive music program for Kindergarten! Teachers are encouraged to add and incorporate the Alphabet Action songs into the program.
