Sing It, Dance It, Play It, Learn It!: Teacher's Manual
Lea Landolfi & Dr. Neil Boumpani
“Sing It, Dance It, Play It, Learn It!” is a collection of twenty-eight original songs, many of which deal with problems and situations that confront our children daily. Each song has a related lesson plan that deals with life situations through discussion, song and music in an enjoyable way. We have included suggestions for co-curricular lessons and assessments. Also included are sample rubrics, which we personally used in our classrooms. Located in the back of the book are additional teaching resources which coincide with several of the lesson plans.
