What educators are saying

I printed these out, laminated them, and put them on the walls outside my room. People love learning about the songs we're doing in music class and I've gotten so many compliments on them!
These are great options for learning about folksongs. I love the historical and cultural notes as well as the selection of folk songs.

    Here are some of my all-time favorite Thanksgiving-themed folk songs bundled with all the resources that I use to teach the song. This “Favorite Folk Song” kit is intended to help you teach the folk song and reinforce historical content and vocabulary at the same time. The set can be printed out and posted on a bulletin board or used as reference cards as you teach the lesson. I know there are some folks on carts or who primarily use digital projectors so I’ve included a PowerPoint format of the set as well.

    I love teaching folk songs to my students! They’re great songs with catchy tunes, are excellent for cultural and historical references, and usually have some sort of movement or dance component. What an exciting way to expand vocabulary! What an excellent way to teach history and culture! What an awesome musical experience to encourage singing and movement!

    I've written several blog posts about how I use these folk songs in my classroom. Click below to learn some practical tips and ideas about using these teacher kids and songs in your own classroom!
