    Music teachers can see any number from 100+ to 1,000+, which overwhelms back to school. A student's name is important to them and is necessary for SEL or social-emotional learning. Are you looking for name games and activities that not only help everyone learn names but also help review concepts and engage students?

    ♫This bundle includes Dr. Stafford's Musical Cure's "Getting to Know You" primary and intermediate music name games and activities with worksheets, songs, journaling, and body percussion to get the students involved in active music-making and provides you with a fun opportunity to get to know your students for back to school, with little to no prep. Several of these activities are suitable for substitutes and include an Easel version.

    Name games and activities included in this bundle are:

    • "This Is My Life” worksheet for K-2
    • "This Is My Life" worksheet for 3-6

    Ideas for Use:

    Use the "All About Me" worksheets as a good social-emotional activity to get to know the students and let them know their opinions are important.

    The worksheets for Paw-Paw Patch come in print AND Easel formats for students who do not like to use pencils and need modifications.

    Use the movement and music activities outside while your students get into the swing of back to school.

    The folk songs also help reinforce the following concepts: beat, rhythm, pitch, and improvisation.

    The body percussion activities are great for form, improvisation, and cooperative learning.

    Best of all: Your students will be engaged!

    This complete bundle is almost $3 off what you would pay if you bought the two name game packages separately. What a deal for the beginning of school!

    **BONUS: Dr. Stafford's new partner cards. Great to help divide students into pairs or groups!
