After a busy week, I'm very glad to see Friday evening!
I've been posting about a variety of topics this week, and I have to admit-more variety is coming! :) I experience so many topics and themes during the workday, that I decided to share as I can and not worry about the randomness of it all.
Tonight's post will feature a double song post, as promised! The topics are Space and Gravity.
For a unit/theme about space, I like to start simple. The song below, Up, up to Space, briefly talks about the sun, the moon, and the stars. It is very basic and the main goal of the song is that the student learn that those three things are up in space. Many of the students I've worked with this past month have enjoyed pointing up high each time the chorus sings, "If we go up, up to space...". Students that cannot speak can also sing the chorus with the support of a voice output device.
The second song is about Gravity.
Gravity is a force and seems quite abstract to some students. My goals when writing this song about gravity were to: give students a better idea of what gravity is, explain what gravity does, and give examples of ways we normally experience gravity everyday.
If you would like song sheets for either or both of these songs, simply send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
