Music for Fun Music for Learning
By: Lois Birkenshaw-Fleming
350 pages
Age Range: Early childhood - Grade 4
Collection of activities for regular and integrated music classrooms. Packed with songs, poetry, listening games, movement ideas, plus basic information on commonly seen disabilities. Now in its fourth edition, this book has been used successfully by teachers of children from early childhood through grades 3 and 4. It has been especially useful in working with children who have special needs in an integrated classroom setting or in self-contained groups.

The music program in this book stresses creativity at every level and in every medium - singing, speaking and moving - because those things the child creates will be the most thoroughly learned. Every child can have success in some aspect of every lesson.  Another aspect of the program is the playing of simple classroom musical instruments: the Orff xylophone and glockenspiel, hand percussion, ukulele and recorder.
