Shake, Rattle, and Roll

Rhythm Instruments and More for Active Learning

by Abigail Flesch Connors

Music and movement go together like books and reading—they spread joy! It’s no secret that quiet doesn’t always equal quality learning. At times, we struggle to help children settle down so they can listen and learn. However, we can also encourage them to move to the beat so they can listen and learn in more active ways.

In Shake, Rattle, and Roll: Rhythm Instruments and More for Active Learning, you will find activities that inspire curiosity, exploration, and creativity. When children are singing, moving, listening, and playing music, their creative energy enhances their learning in many areas:

  • Language—Repetitive songs help develop oral language and early literacy.

  • Math—Music involves fractions, ratios, patterns, and proportions.

  • Science—Activities involve acoustics, volume, velocity, mass, and force.

  • Music—Children explore culture, imagine different environments, and express themselves while playing songs and singing along.
