The second stage of the Inside Music programme deals with the 5-7 year age group. First Steps is an immensely practical handbook and accompanying CD that deals with the curriculum for this age group.
This book includes 168 full colour pages of easy-to-follow units offering a step-by-step aural/vocal approach to teaching musical skills and concepts using fun songs and games. Also useful is the planning framework specifically designed to support structured progression of learning throughout years 1-2. The repertoire of 61 songs and rhymes includes tips and suggestions on associated activities to reinforce learning.
Each song in the handbook can be heard a cappella on the accompanying CD plus a wealth of related listening material and printable planning templates and rhythm cards.
