The Back to School Batch, part 4

Welcome back to More with Music!

The countdown is on!

Students are headed back to school across the country and I'm preparing to return to working for a public school system as well.  There are only two more days of "freedom" for me and I'm relishing the free time while it lasts!

Today's post is part 4 of The Back to School Batch.  Today's song post is "Let's learn about books".

This song is a great one to incorporate in classrooms where students are learning about book awareness (pre-K, kindergarten, pre-literacy groups, early and beginning readers,etc.).  If any of you are organizing your songs, and/or aligning them with the new common core standards for classrooms this year, this song would fall under the following standard:

RL.K.6. With prompting and support, name the author and illustrator of a story and define the role of each in telling the story.

This song introduces the following book awareness components:  cover, title, author and illustrator.
You can actually use any book you choose and point to the individual parts of the book while the song is playing (this would be great to do before you read a book to a group or classroom to review the parts of the book).  I've seen some teachers have each student select a book from their "reading corners" and while the song is playing, each student finds each part of the book with his/her own book.  

So, here it is:  "Let's learn about books"

Stay tuned for the song sheet for this song and have a great Wednesday!
