“Two-Step Direction Song” music therapy lesson plan for kids
-Age: 6 to 12 and younger -Goal Area: social skills (but also physical and language skills, too.) -Name of Activity: Two step directions -Objective: Clients will take turns naming ways to move and then moving in those ways- two movements per verse. -Materials: “ Two-step directions” adapted from “I’m gonna wash that man right out of my hair,” from South Pacific. (You can find the melody on you tube.) -Method: Ask two children to think of a way to move and incorporate their suggestions into the song lyrics. Give everyone a turn. -Adaptations: provide an entire verse for one child/motion. Make different classifications of movements such as “how can you move your hands,” or “Show me a slow way to move,” or “how do you move when you’re sad.” Of course you can pick a different melody if you like. -Submitted by: (optional name and email) Margie La Bella of Music therapy tunes. com An example of this would be: (providing you reflect the childrens answers.) (G) C C/B C/A C/G I’m gonna clap my hands and turn around. (repeat two more times.) Dm G7 Good job Manuel and James. End last time on chord “C.”
