Using a Song Bag with your class

  • A collection of objects could be put into the bag and as each object is pulled out children have to think of a song involving the object - eg.  a star could suggest 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star'.
  • All the objects in the bag could be about a single song which the children have to guess as they pull them out - and then use the objects during the singing of the song.  For example a collection of animals for 'Old Macdonald.'
  • Each child writes down their favourite song - or draws a picture to represent it - one of two these are then pulled out at the end of the day each day and sung before children go home.
  • The bag can be filled with different musical notes - crochets, quavers, etc - for children to identify.  They could then use the notes to make up a rhythm that they tap out on percussion instruments.
  • The bag can be used as a straightforward storage bag for musical instruments.
  • Or do you have a better idea?
