– Are you tired of singing the same old welcome and name songs?
– Are you looking for ways to incorporate more singing (instead of talking) in your classroom or homeschool?
The 48 pages include lesson ideas for grades Pre-K to 5th, many with Orff arrangements. These are fresh ideas for welcoming students to class, learning their names, telling them to line up, singing students’ names when it’s their turn to play instruments, etc. Lesson concepts include:
Rhythm (long/short, notes/rests, syncopation, duple & triple meter)
Melodic contour (high/low, solfege, pitch-matching assessment)
Movement (locomotor, circle dances, hand-clapping games, movement improvisation)
