Literacy & Numeracy and Music - 6 simple starting point activities

Literacy & Numeracy and Music - 6 simple starting point activities

Literacy & Numeracy and Music - 6 simple starting point activities are simple activities you could try with your classes to begin to develop literacy and numeracy engagement in music. These first 6 activities are simple to do, with all necessary resources included to be copied and used. The activities are as generic as possible - they can be used across any topic you are studying, rather than "pigeon holing" into one individual category. There is no order to the activities - you simply choose one to match your needs and make it as long or as short as you like! Some of the activities might seem quite obvious, but I hope you will find something new to have a go at. The resource can be used across all age groups - they are simple enough to differentiate based on the group you have in front of you. For example, when writing about music, younger children may write single words, whilst older or more able children will write sentences or paragraphs. I hope you enjoy having a go at these activities - please leave some feedback and if there is something you would like to see in the future then let me know!
