This collection of lessons for fall by Denise Gagné has activities for children to chant, sing, play, move, dramatize, listen to and create music. Children will learn key musical concepts such as high/low, and action songs teach letters and letter sounds. Classical and world music are used in music examples. Designed for fall months, and accessible to both music specialists and classroom teachers, these 12 sequenced lessons are outlined with 10-12 activities in each lesson. A CD is included with recordings of all poems, chants, and listening examples. A digital resource is also available separately or in a set with the teacher's guide.
