This song and lesson are great for ages 0-5 years old!
Here is the video that goes with the lesson and instructions are below for how to teach the lesson:
“Hop Little Bunnies” (available on SIRI, ALEXA, ITUNES etc) What to do: Sing this part QUIET & have the children pretend to sleep: “See the bunnies sleeping till it’s nearly noon Shall we wake them with a merry tune? They’re so still, are they ill? Wake up soon!”
Then sing this part LOUD! “Wake up little bunnies!" (can pretend an alarm clock goes off) Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop Hope little bunnies, hop, hop, hop Hop, Hop, Hop and STOP" (or FREEZE can be fun)
Lesson: Let’s learn about dynamics! For toddlers, just introduce loud and soft! (Or quiet) Older kiddos can learn that DYNAMICS are : "how loud or soft music is"
Some questions: Which part should we sing softly? Which part should we sing LOUDLY Older kids can learn that in music we call LOUD “FORTE” In music we call QUIET “PIANO” What else should we make the bunnies do? Fill in the blank and sing the song with their creative ideas In teaching it’s important to ask questions and let them discover the answers <3 Some things they might say: “SNAP little bunnies” “CLAP little bunnies” “FLOSS little bunnies” (this was popular in my classes right now! LOL I didn’t even know what it meant! HAVE FUN and happy music making! <3
