Poems, Props and Play!
Many different students come to our classroom and therefore we need many different ways to teach our standards to the children that are coming into our rooms. Come and see how poetry can enhance the elements that you are teaching your kiddos. How do props enhance the music that your students listen to and learn about? And how will play through children’s literature and various instruments bring to life the rhythms and musical vocabulary we want our students to apply everyday.
