My Ears

Welcome back to More with Music!
 Today I'm sharing a windows movie I just finished this week. I was so happy with the way it turned out. :)
 The song on the movie is "My Ears" and I wrote it for a classroom I'm working with who is learning about the 5 senses. In addition to writing the song, I wanted to have actual sounds that the students could relate to in their home and school environments. The students loved the sounds!
 So, without further delay, here's the windows movie. Be patient-sometimes it takes a few moments to get going. :)

Stay tuned later this week for the song, My Ears, which will be available for purchase for only $0.99!
Have a great weekend!

Fractions





Welcome back to More with Music!

It's almost the end of the school year and across the country, many students are getting ready for or currently taking their end of grade tests (EOG's).  In many classrooms I serve, we've been reviewing various topics to help ensure the students will be able to do their best on the tests.

One topic we've been reviewing this past week is fractions.  We use a lot of different manipulatives when working on fractions with students with special needs.  Before we ask the students to work with the manipulatives or SMART board activities, we sing this song to help get them focused on what we are talking about.

So, I thought it would be a great song to share with all of you today.




If you would like a song sheet for this song, please send me an email to morewithmusic@gmail.com.  
As always, thanks for stopping by!

Bugs, bugs, bugs!

Welcome back to More with Music!

Today I'll be sharing another song about bugs.
Earlier this week, I shared my song that goes along with the book, "5 little ladybugs".

Today I'll be singing about many bugs.  When I think of bugs in general, I think of bugs that crawl and bugs that fly.  There are also bugs who can do both, which make them even more annoying to catch!

So, for this song, I focused on bugs that crawl and bugs that fly.  I kept the lyrics pretty simple and tried to stay with bugs that students are more likely to see and be exposed to in the great outdoors.




I hope you have had a good week so far!  If you would like a song sheet for this song complete with lyrics and guitar chords, just send me an email to:  morewithmusic@gmail.com

As always, if you have additional song needs/requests for topics you are working on with students, I'd love to hear from you and work on a song for your needs.  Email me at the above email address with your requests.

The bugs are back!

Welcome back to More with Music!

The temperatures here are definitely warming up and I'm sure the humidity of summer is on its way!

Last week I posted a song about April showers bring May flowers and talked about the showers associated with the spring season.  Today I'm changing the focus to something else that returns in the spring---the bugs!

Ladybugs are okay with me, but I'm really not a fan of ants, spiders, mosquitos, bees, etc. (yes, I know some of those are insects, but I call all of them bugs).  :)

So, this week I'm going to post several songs that I like to sing about various bugs.

For my first  song about bugs, I'm sharing the song below entitled 5 Little Ladybugs.  This song goes along with the 5 little Ladybugs children's book written by Melanie Gerth and illustrated by Laura Huliska-Beith.
