Perfect Spring activity! A wonderful activity for K-3 music, drama or homeroom classes. My students love this activity and ask for it every year. For story, teaching process, instrumentation and movement please see "Orff Mosaic Canada" by Lois-Birkenshaw-Fleming. An amazing resource and a must for all Elementary school music educators.
After going through the story as outlined in Orff Mosaic we added instruments and movement with scarves. This activity could easily be part of a spring performance for another class or parents.
After participating through playing instruments, moving, and speaking students each got to color their own book. Students took them home to share with families.
When photocopying for your class, make either double sided or single sided copies, staple sort, then cut in half and add staples to lower half of the page.
I hope you enjoy!
