TV-128  Sing and Play on Special Days / Print Book and Audio Download by Jeanette Shorey

Sing and Play on Special Days is a versatile collection of 67 valuable resources for holidays and special celebrations that happen throughout the school year. It includes singing games, rounds, poems, unison and 2 part piano songs, readers theatre, and songs with Orff accompaniments. These activities can be used for Fall, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Remembrance/Veterans Day, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year, Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Earth Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and more! Whether you are looking for classroom teaching materials or a song to perform at a school assembly, you will find this to be a valuable resource.

Welcome and goodbye songs give structure to your music classes, a chant reminds your kids to maintain good posture, and dismissal games teach your kids to line up in a respectful way without stampeding to the door.

There are fun interactive activities to liven up any music class, such as using a balloon to make a bat sound while you sing, music-related variations to games like hot potato or upset the fruit basket, dances for every season, and other options that your students will love.

As well, there are practical resources within the collection that help teach your students the importance of commemorating certain special days while at the same time relating it to something personal to the children, such as learning how to navigate conflict with others.
