Description

Too often elementary classroom teachers lack the confidence to present music to their students because they themselves have little formal training in this area. The SongWorks collection emphasizes singing in the general elementary classroom as a learning tool. Peggy Bennett explains how singing is a natural and effective basis for teaching – and everyone can sing!

Former elementary school music teachers Bennet and Bartholomew show teachers how to lead and interact with children during music activities through examples of real classroom teaching experiences. With over 80 scenarios of elementary classroom experiences, 40 folk songs, and 95 accompanying games, this resource is a must have for any classroom!
