Rap Of The States
From Plank Road Publishingby Teresa Jennings
An Awesome, All-American Teaching Resource
From the ABC song to TV commercials, one of the quickest, most enjoyable ways to learn is by singing. This clever musical unit helps teach all of the states with their capitals, all set to a hot rap track that your students are certain to enjoy.
The Teacher's Handbook includes the entire rap with full accompaniment, as well as teaching suggestions, staging ideas, ideas for customizing the rap and even suggestions for using Orff and classroom instruments with the tune. It also includes several important reproducibles, including a complete Student Part (with rights to reproduce parts for every student, no matter how many you have) as well as a distinctive poster, a reproducible map of the U.S. and other resources for teaching this unit across the curriculum.
It's a great way to teach rhythms, grab the interest of hard-to-reach singers and get classroom teachers more involved with your music program.
