Baa Baa Beat
By Dena Adams and Claire Clark
This Is Music series Vol.2 Kindergarten
Book and CD
50 pages

Eight early childhood music lessons designed for the teacher or substitute with a limited music background.
The music teacher uses these theme-oriented lessons as filler activities, as concept support, or for a change of pace. The substitute teacher uses these lessons in place of videos, instead of worksheets, or instead of free play. Lessons are in easy-to-follow outline format. Little or NO music background required. Songs are familiar or piggyback off of well-known tunes. Notation is melody on the treble clef. The accompanying CD has all songs, poems and listening examples.
