Product Details


Once upon a time, a hardworking music teacher was determined to slay the dragons of student doldrums. She looked far and wide for meaningful yet entertaining lessons that would engage her students while addressing the Common Core music standards. One day, she happened upon a set of enchanting books filled with folk tales, fairy tales, nursery rhymes, myths, legends, and more. As they dove into the grade-appropriate literature and music activities, her students became active musicians and lived happily ever after! Each volume of Once Upon a Music Class includes 20 lessons, complete with objectives, procedures, reproducible student pages, and all necessary recordings. Recommended for grades Pre-K through two.
