Today I'm posting my final post of implementation ideas for songs from my All things Winter album. If you want to check out all the songs on this album without scrolling through the blog posts below, you can click here.
The two songs below are very similar and target the same goals and objectives. They both target students understanding appropriate clothing for the weather (in this case, Winter). Each song also identifies where each article of clothing is worn.
"I Dress for the Weather" identifies the following winter garments: a hat on my head, a jacket, a scarf around my neck and gloves on my hands. I recommend having visuals or real objects to show the students as you sing this song.
"I wish I was a snowman" helps students identify parts of the face (eyes, nose, mouth), and winter clothing (scarf and mittens). This song is for younger students and has a repetitive chorus with each verse. You can easily create a small or large "snowman" with white paper plates and as you sing the song, students can help dress the snowman. A great tip I recently started implementing is to use the solo plastic plates and you can attach velcro easily to them. You can print two eyes, a nose, and a mouth and the students can put them on the right places for the face.
This wraps up my implementation suggestions for the songs from my album, All things Winter.
If you have any questions, please comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I would love to hear how you use these songs and how you implemented them with students you serve.
Stay tuned for new song posts!
