Creative Bits With Children's Lit
From Beatin' Path Publicationsby Sandy Lantz and Gretchen Wahlberg
In Creative Bits With Children's Lit, Sandy Lantz and Gretchen Wahlberg focus on nine children's books that vary in reading levels, genres, and subjects. As school districts adopt Common Core Standards, these lessons integrate language arts and music while maintaining the integrity of both subject areas. The lessons adapt to multi-age groups as well as mainstreamed special needs classes. With rhyming words, metric call-and-response speech phrases, patterns, and onomatopoeias, language arts lends itself to a perfect blend with music. Each book comes alive in the music classroom as it 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 story, reading, and song.
