Welcome back to More with Music!

I've been busy as usual, but have finally found a few minutes to get a song post up and ready to go.

Many of the middle and high school classes I work in are learning about conservation, pollution, recycling,etc..

For this song, I concentrated on water conservation and four simple things we can all do to conserve water.  The four ways are:  turn water off when it's not in use, fix leaks and drips, turn the water off while you're brushing your teeth, and take shorter showers.

Many of the older students love to sing songs that have a "beat".  While I'm not all to fond of rap (myself rapping, that is), I do like to add beats to songs to encourage the students to sing and participate.

So, here it is, Water Conservation.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by next week for another song post.  :)

I learn something new every day!

Welcome back to More with Music!

February was packed with many songs and many music therapy sessions for me.  I always wonder where all the time goes, but I have yet to figure that out.

One of the great things about working in a public school system is that I find myself learning something new every day.  Recently, I learned that there are more than four oceans.  That's right- now there's five!  (I was amazed, intrigued,shocked,etc. too!)  But, after double checking the info, I discovered it to be true.  The 5 oceans are the Arctic Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, Pacific Ocean, and Southern Ocean.

A couple of years ago, I wrote and recorded a song to help students learn that there were four oceans. Today I'm sharing the most recent version of that song, which includes the fifth ocean.

As always, thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for another post next week.
