Product Details


Creative Connections is an outstanding resource for general music teachers, compiling specially crafted games, songs, and lesson plans to actively connect new material to prior knowledge. Fully reproducible and designed for grades 2--6, the activities utilize the art of play to introduce, explore, review, apply, transfer, master, and assess musical concepts. The innovative lesson plans are easy to use and enjoyable for teachers and students alike. The activities offer inventive ideas for inexpensive yet creative manipulatives, such as large boxes and small rhythmic dice, beat boards, rhythmic value-sized rhythm cards, stuffed animals, small play tents, and a giant, floor-sized music staff. Also included is a Data CD of the book with templates and visuals for easy projection, classroom sharing, and immediate use. Help your students make the Creative Connection today!
