Music in pre-school education is an important field in terms of affective, cognitive and psychomotor development of children. In order to increase the quality of music education, musical activities should be appropriate to the level of children, educational and entertaining. In recent years, pre-school music education has been carried out within the framework of play, movement, dance, rhythm and improvisation, separate from the traditional approach. Teachers need supplementary books containing songs, games and activities in accordance with the required pre-school gains to be used in musical activities. There are ancillary resources mentioned in the music education literature that include these activities and are informative for teachers. However, the adequacy of the existing activity books is an important issue in terms of the better implementation of pre-school music education. This study aimed to examine the activity books that teachers use in pre-school music education. The study is a document review. Books were analysed in terms of activities and songs.
