Songs To Sing and Picture: Grades PreK-2.
Dudley, Lillian L.; Kinghorn, Harriet R.
This resource, designed for both experienced music teachers and educators with limited background in music, combines 50 simple songs with related learning activities and reading suggestions to develop creativity in students and to reinforce learning in a variety of subjects. Each original composition has chord symbols for guitar and autoharp, with music for piano accompaniment on a separate page. Topics in the songs range from the traditional to the contemporary; the content of many of the songs is educational. Activities support learning about self-esteem, home and family, and multicultural issues, and can be used orally with young children and as written assignments for older students to encourage self-expression through art and to promote vocabulary development and comprehension.
