This music program was written based upon the book The Three Javelinas by Susan Lowell. It includes four original songs with Orff instrument accompaniment and is perfect for an upper elementary music program - grades 3, 4, 5, or 6. A script is NOT included with this product because the book The Three Javelinas was used for the script and is copyrighted material. You will have to purchase the book to create your script. I have included a portion of a sentence or a paraphrased sentence from the book that comes before each song to try to help you develop the script.

The orff accompaniment uses soprano and alto glockenspiels, alto and soprano xylophones, bass xylophones and metallophones, and contrabass xylophone bars. The glockenspiels play the same part, the alto and soprano xylophones play the same part, and the bass xylophone, metallophone, and contrabass bars play the same part. It also includes parts other non-pitched percussion instruments. Three of the songs also include an optional soprano recorder part that use the notes C, D, E, G, A, B, and D'. The complete program is approximately 25 minutes in length.

I believe this entertaining and educational music program will engage your students and your audience as mine were.
