This collection is full of familiar children's songs and new originals incorporating not only the fun of Boomwhackers, but Orff instruments and percussion as well. Optional piano accompaniments support the vocal lines. There is so much to teach using this collection-including counting beats, I-V chords, note identification, melodic movement, various meters, major/minor, sequencing, patterns, pitch names and singing rounds. When the novelty of Boomwhackers temporarily subsides in your classroom, you have a collection to continue learning with Orff, percussion and great singing with songs for every season. Some of the songs featured are: Hot Cross Buns • Ahrirang • Volga Boatmen's Song • This Old Man • Canoe Song • and more. Grades K-6.
