Description
I'm Growing Up Fingerplays, Action Songs, Singing Games and Stories for Young Children Edited by Mary Alice Amidon and Andy Davis is a collection of lively rhythmic materials for children from preschool to grade 1 which includes a CD and a DVD. The songs, finger plays, games and dances invite children to immediately discover ways to connect with language, their hands and feet, their imagination and their community. The materials are drawn from activities composed by contemporary artists as well as traditional sources. In many cases, the variations that Davis and Amidon have found successful are included in the notes. The selections that would benefit most from being visual are on the DVD. Likewise, the CD does not include every selection from the book, but a broad sampling of the game and action songs. The editors urge you to use the CD as a learning tool for putting your own style into the singing.

  • I'm Growing Up
    Great resource and was received in a timely fashion.
  • Superb!
    Fabulous collection! I just received it and immediately used several of the songs/movements in my music classroom. A wonderful value—you get the book, a CD, and a DVD that demonstrates the vast majority of things in the book. A valuable resource!
  • Love this collection!
    I have used this collection a ton with my K-2 music classes. The CD is really high quality. The kids love the songs. I always keep a few of these songs/activities in mind in case the other things I've planned for the day run short and I need to fill a few extra minutes. Some activities would probably work for older grades too, I just happen to only teach K-2.
  • Love this book
    I saw Mary Amidon this fall and was amazed! This book and Cd are on constant replay in my car for my four and two year old. AND I can stand to listen to it too! Great lessons for preschoolers that work!!!
