Around the Seasons

Welcome back to More with Music!

Today I'm sharing a song that I have shared before.  The teachers that I work with use this song quite often, and especially when there is a season change.

We all know and observe many different things associated with each season.  Some students have a very difficult time transitioning from one season to another.
For example, in the summer, we wear less clothes/lighter clothes.  Then in the fall and winter seasons, we wear long sleeves, sweaters and/or coats.  Many times students have sensory issues with different kinds of clothes and layers, and it takes time for them to transition.  With repetition, we try to teach them that we dress according to the weather and that certain seasons are usually associated with certain types of weather.

I wrote this song with the above information in mind.

I also created an interactive resource using SMART Notebook software, that provides visual and auditory support using this song.

Stop by tomorrow for Around the Seasons part 2, and learn more about how teachers incorporate this song with their SMART boards!
