Fun, fun and more fun! What more could you ask for than a resource that will have students begging to listen to more classical music? In Parachutes and Ribbons and Scarves, Oh My!, Artie Almeida shares some of her most-beloved guided listening and movement-based lessons. These lessons offer a wonderful opportunity to build a school/home/family connection.
Artie sends home Family Musical Moment notes to encourage families to share the experience by downloading the piece of music and listening to it together. Each lesson in this book has a page of Family Musical Moment Notes in the online data files as well as in reproducibles throughout the book's pages.
The included access to online resources features orchestral tracks from the Naxos recording label, video performances of the lessons, and reproducible visuals and teaching aids. Look on page 6 to see how to access these resources.
Pull out your favorite movement props and let the learning - and listening - begin!
