  • Expanding First Steps for the Orff Specialist!!!
    As a veteran teacher, I am using First Steps with my pre-k classes for the first time. I enjoy having the FS w/OS book to help me present the concepts using my Orff background. The book is extremely user friendly and gives the FS curriculum a little spice. The book is consise and to the point. I am enjoying having some new ideas to my old favorites!!!
