Thanksgiving songs and music are hard to find! So we decided to compose our own Thanksgiving song tale based on the traditional counting song "Over in the Meadow" to use in our classrooms. Our students have loved singing this counting song and using the complimentary resources. We hope you choose to add our Thanksgiving song to your repertoire this year!
Thanksgiving in the Meadow is a song tale based on the traditional counting song, "Over in the Meadow", but with a little touch of Thanksgiving! The soundtrack includes the melody line sung over a banjo accompaniment. We wrote this book to be a great Thanksgiving Day resource for any music, pre-K, kindergarten, first, second, or third grade classroom.
Thanksgiving in the Meadow is a song story 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 this to be a valuable resource.
Thanksgiving in the Meadow also lends itself to being used for Sub plans. Several of the activities could be integrated into sub plans quite easily.
The ebook is also included in our Thanksgiving in the Meadow Song Tale Bundle
