Want to set off the new school year on the right foot in your music room? This helpful set includes:

*Six first day lesson plans (one each for Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade, Third Grade, Fourth Grade, and Fifth Grade.) The lessons plans have time for setting up procedures as well as music making, and are aligned to the NCCAS music standards! The lessons come as PDF's as well as editable lesson plans so you can edit however you'd like!

*Songs/ chants for each lesson: includes Aiken Drum, Bear Hunt, Bee Bee, Bingo Bongolo, Bunny Game, Diddle Diddle Dumpling, Frog in the middle, Ida Red, Jump in, Oboshinotentoten, Red are Strawberries, Rickity Rackity, Sansa Kroma, See Saw, Tideo, We are dancing

*Icebreaker Bingo: to use with 3rd-5th grade; comes with 4 templates as well as an editable template

*Seating chart templates: three row templates and three circle templates

Read the reviews:

"Great resource! I love that it gets the business part of the first day done without making it last too long. The kids get to sing and play and review last year. Wonderful!"

"I've been using this pack for the last two weeks in class. I'm so happy I bought it, but I wish I had purchased it sooner! My kiddos LOVE the "Jump in, Jump Out" game. This one's a winner!"

"I'm so excited to use these resources! I always feel stumped on what to do that's fun, but also gives me time to go over the rules on the first day. These songs are great! I also love the bingo activity, as it gives me information about the students as well. Thanks for a wonderful product!"
