Are you a Kindergarten teacher looking for creative ways to teach the common core? Or a music teacher looking for ways to integrate common core into your music classroom? This product offers eight different lessons that can be taught by both Kindergarten teachers and music teachers. The lessons revolve around folk music common for music teachers to teach their Kindergarten students, instead of traditional songs with changed lyrics. The lessons include:

*Movement activity (Language/ vocabulary acquisition and use)
*Down by the Bay (Reading/ Foundational)
*Oh a Hunting we will go (Reading/ Foundational)
*Possum come a Knockin’ (Reading/ Literature)
*Favorite piece of music (Writing/ Text types and purposes)
*Apple Tree (Mathematics/ Counting and Cardinality)
*1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (Mathematics/ Numbers and operation in base ten)
*Johnny works with one hammer (Mathematics/ Operations and Algebraic Thinking)

For those teachers comfortable with singing, the lessons include notated music; for those not musically inclined, the lessons include mp3’s. Slideshows, worksheets, and lyrics sheets also accompany many of the lessons. Each lesson includes the specific common core standards covered, the musical objectives met, materials, and process.
