New RELEASE from Beatin' Path Publications, LLC - Creative Bits with Children's Lit
Sandy Lantz and Gretchen Wahlberg's new follow-up of their best-selling book Drum it Up! Here are some favorite children's books, all readily available, presented with Orff process lesson plans, songs, games, and activities.
Each book, while being read aloud in class, is embellished with songs, games, movement, puppetry, and drama. There's never been a better way to present important music concepts than through engaging young musicians with stories, reading, and song.
In Creative Bits With Children’s Lit, Sandy and Gretchen have focused on nine books which vary in reading levels, genres, and subjects. As districts across the nation adopt Common Core Standards, these lessons integrate language arts and music while maintaining the integrity of both subject areas. Language arts, with rhyming words, metric call and response speech phrases, patterns, and onomatopoeias, lends itself to a perfect blend with music. With poetry, folk tales, fun stories, and books addressing social issues, great connections have been made with teachers and students between books and music.
These lessons adapt to multi-age groups as well as mainstreamed special needs classes. Differentiated instruction is integrated with a thoroughly kid-tested teaching process.
This great new release encourages music teachers everywhere to get the “Bug” and open a book!
