Simply Beginning
By Sue Mueller
Book and CD-ROM
52 pages
Grades K - 6

Simply Beginning is a collection of kid-tested materials and suggestions for beginning a new unit or type of activity during the school year. There are lessons for introducing a new music concept or skill as you start or end a day, year or season. These lessons are not sequential, but a grade level is suggested for each lesson plan with objectives and teaching suggestions.

The activities are grounded in Orff Schulwerk and incorporate exploration, imitation, improvisation and literacy.  Besides the lesson plans, the book includes a glossary of terms and a CD-ROM. The CD-ROM has full-color and black-and-white visuals suitable for your presentation software, interactive whiteboard or for printing hard copies.
