Nighttime in the Meadow is a song tale ebook based on the traditional counting song, Over in the Meadow. In our version, some animals are settling in for the night and others are waking up to start their day.
The soundtrack includes the melody line sung over a simple xylophone accompaniment. We wrote this book to be a great resource for any music, pre-K, kindergarten, first, second, or third grade classroom.
This resource is a song tale ebook in movie format. The music ebook itself is about four minutes long and there is a sound track that plays along with it. We have created two files, one with accompaniment only and one with vocals to fit your various needs. The files are MP4s and are able to be played on any device, smart phones included. You can also project it onto a large screen.
At Music in the Meadow, we believe that music can be integrated successfully into any classroom and we have included matching, rhyming, art, music, and movement activities in our lesson plans. We hope that elementary music teachers, and classroom teachers alike will find great value in this resource.
Nighttime in the Meadow also lends itself to being used for Sub plans. Several of the activities could be integrated into sub plans quite easily.
