Musicplay for Kindergarten Teachaer's Guide
By Denise Gagne 
Teacher guide (binder) and 6 performance/ accompaniment CDs
For grades preK-1 (esp. K).

Musicplay for Kindergarten is a play based program, with more than 150 songs to teach musical concepts and to reinforce learning in all academic areas.Musical concepts are taught through traditional and composed action songs, singing games, singalong songs, chants, and activities. Includes songs for many different themes, such as names, colors, shapes, numbers, ABC's, fall, various holidays, pumpkins, peace, friends, families, dinosaurs, spring, multicultural music, safety & health, lineup songs, welcome songs, speaking & singing voice, loud & soft, high & low, keeping the beat, and more.

Lesson plans, a year plan, a thematic index. a reproducible beat chart, and reproducible picture/ word cards are included.

Each song lists the related CD track, teaching process, and suggested activities; boxes for each week list the concept to teach, theme featured, and other songs used (ones that are not for the featured concept). Most songs give the melody line and lyrics; some also have chord letters.

This program is for both the Kindergarten classroom teacher and the music specialist with a real emphasis on integrating learning through music. The Alphabet Action Songs book (item 805019, available separately) can be incorporated into the program.
