Well, it's the first day of February, and I have a song to share.
It's not a very long song, but it is a catchy one! :)
I wrote this song to help teach students the difference between living and non-living things. Basically, all living things breath air, move, grow, and need food (of some kind), and water. Non-living things do not need air, food, or water and cannot move by themselves.
I use visual aids with this song. I have different pictures of items (i.e. a chair, a kitten, a cd, a puppy, etc.). After singing the song, I ask, "Does the chair need food and water?", or "Does the kitten grow?". This facilitates yes/no questions within a group very well.
Stay tuned for another post soon! I'll be sharing a song that was very challenging for me to write!
If you have any questions or comments, or would like to share a thought or two, please feel free to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great week!
