This week kindergartners and first graders were introduced to “music story time.” This is a time (at the end of music usually) where we relax, after all of our dancing around, and read a book together. Not just any book though- in music, we read “story songs”- songs that have been made into picture books! This week we listened to a song called Sweet Dreams by Jewel, as we looked at pictures from the book.
You can listen to the song here.
The book and CD are available at the Manomet library, and you can also find it on amazon.com here.
This song is gorgeous and the kindergartners who had music twice this week loved singing along with it the second time we heard it!
There are many “story songs” that are favorites here in the music room, with kids of all ages. Here is a list of just a few of the stories I present throughout the year. Most of these come with a CD, are all available on amazon.com, and many can be found in one of the Plymouth Public Libraries.
