Research indicates that using music throughout the day can assist in classroom management and can be used to strengthen and support learning in all developmental areas. Using the research of published literature and personal observations form the underlying structure of this thesis. The booklet, Songs of Early Childhood (unpublished), forms the application. The booklet, divided into age groups, contains songs and music activities in addition to indicators of typical developmental characteristics and music skill characteristics. Using the songbook as a resource in writing classroom lesson plans, early childhood teachers will be better able to weave music throughout the day.
