Music Class


So I'm currently taking a child development class entitled, "Music, Movement, Children." The ages addressed in the class range from infants through second or third grade. I've learned quite a few silly songs and dances in the last two months.

Two of my favorites being-

[don't forget to turn the blog music off at the bottom of the page first]


and 

[the song starts 30 seconds into the video]


I also recently created a lesson plan using the song "Put a Little Color On You" by Hap Palmer.

A couple of nights ago we did a few projects in class for use in music lessons. One was a "streamer", made of a popsicle stick,crepe paper and tape, one was a "tambourine" made out of 2 paper plates, bells, a hole puncher and string/pipe cleaners and the last one was "shakers" out of plastic easter eggs, rice and beans and tape to keep the egg closed. My favorite was the "shakers". Easy, quick, colorful and cheap. They also make a really nice sound.





By the way if you've never heard of Sarah Weeks' book Crocodile Smile, you should. It's a book with CD with wonderful songs [I can't find ANY on Youtube to share but trust me, they're amazing]. They're all about animals and friendship. The songs were a big part of my first and second grade education. I was able to track down the book a couple years ago and found I remembered all the words! It's amazing what we choose to remember.

How fun! I always get so many of my kids silly songs stuck in my head! I love it! They do to, especially when I randomly break out into song in the car!:-)

Have a great day!

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.
