In this Preschool Prodigies music lesson, we take a closer look at the notes Mi, Sol and La, to prepare ourselves for a chapter full of Mi-Sol-La songs.
In "Mi, So, La Warm-Up" we…
-Review the sound and the hand-signs for Mi and Sol slowly
-Get a closer look at the note La and learn the hand-sign
-Practice reading music on a simplified version of the treble clef
-Learn that “Nanny Nanny Boo Boo” is a combination of Mi Sol and La
-Sing with the numbers 3, 5 and 6
Mi, Sol, La Warm Up Follow Up
If you don’t have an instrument, this chapter is full of songs that start with the Solfege Hand-Signs. That way, you can hand-sign along with each lesson very easily.
The workbook pages in this chapter also have additional song sheets that you can try learning on your own. This is a great way to put your skills with Mi-Sol-La to the test! Even if you don’t know how the song goes, you can use your knowledge of Mi Sol and La to figure it out!
Remember that it’s never too early to try some listening games with Mi, Sol and La. Doing one listening game now and at the end of the chapter help you gauge how far your learner has come with memorizing these notes.
Don’t forget the colors and numbers to reinforce the other names for the three notes we’re playing this week too: E/3, G/5, and A/6, or Yellow, Teal, and Purple.
You can also ask your learner some questions about what they played in music this week. Some examples are…
What colors make up Mi, Sol, and La?
What numbers go with Mi, Sol, and La?
Can you show me the hand-sign for Sol and La?
Next week, we’ll be playing another song with Mi, Sol, and La, “Doggie, Doggie, Where’s Your Bone.”
