The Musicians R8

Gretchen's lesson
5 and 6 year olds

The Musicians of Bremen.

This was a challenge for some of the children today. The hardest part was scribing the background. We filled the white board with animal names. The children's task was to draw lines across the page and fill the lines with animals names. This was dyed and became the background.

Drawing the animals was a little easier as we had plastic animals to refer to. They chose whichever animal they wanted, but were asked to stack them from biggest to smallest.

I posted about a similar lesson a few weeks ago, with an older class. the-musicians-of-bremen


  1. Hi Gretchen, I just wanted to tell you just how much your blog has encouraged me. I love seeing the wonderful things you do with the children. They are very fortunate to have you! Your projects are creative and engaging and look like a lot of fun. Thank you so much for sharing. I have learned so much from you. Ceil Murphy
