This resource includes over 100 pages of arrangements, teaching strategies, and helpful visual aids that can be used for in-person or remote learning. Synthia MacEachern provides everything you need to create engaging music lesson plans that spiral through the early years.
Spiral instruction unifies your music program and supports cross grade-level music experiences. Songs and poems developed in this book are “Star Light”, “One, Two, Three”, “Acka Backa Soda Cracker,” and an original composition “Ice Cream”. Two original stories to use in the music classroom have also been included.
Each song has been developed into four categories – Let’s Sing, Let’s Move, Let’s Play, and Let’s Create and offer developmentally appropriate teaching strategies for 4 to 9-year-olds. The visual aids and worksheets can be reproduced to use in your classroom. All Orff arrangements were created by Synthia MacEachern and introduce the Orff instrumentarium to young learners. Recorder strategies have been included for two songs.
