April is National Poetry Month, the largest literacy celebration in the world. I have the perfect warm-up for your class with my new online learning lesson. As a professional storyteller, I have learned firsthand the power that a good story holds for children. Without a boarding pass, a train ticket or even a good pair of walking shoes, I take children on a journey to the most wonderful and interesting places imaginable through this online lesson! And in the process, I help kids learn how to exercise their imaginations.
You can find it on the front page of my website too!
And after your class is warmed up from my online lesson, spring them into action with a fun contest to enter! Learn about Harmony Projects, Global Connections With Cantata Learning. These are wonderful ways to get your students reading, creating, writing, singing, sharing, collaborating, and so much more with others around the world.
Cantata Learning is holding a Rhythms and Rhymes contest. 5 winners will receive 30 Cantata Learning hardcover books!
It so easy for your class to enter. Just follow these 3 simple steps!
- Simply go to the Cantata Music Library where you will find free nursery rhymes and folk songs to stream online or download as an mp3 file.
- Then create a video that shows your students’ hand motions or other movements for the song. They can be the traditional hand motions or new motions that you create.
- The deadline is April 1st, so you’ve got to jump on this fun activity this week. Here is the submit button so you have it handy!
