Item No: 21609


by Andrew Briggs, with orchestrations by Tim Hayden.

Add these kinesthetic stick routines to holiday favorites for a different approach. Discuss the history of the song and the holiday, teach the song, then learn the rhythms either by rote or note.

Tap sticks on your knees; click or scrape them together; cross tap your shoulders or knees, or with a neighbor; organize a rhythm stick relay; ask some to sing and some to play; perform in call and response led by teacher or student, more. Play-along tracks, plus reproducible pages/pdfs on CD. Glossary of movement, too. Gr. 1-6.

Paperback & Enhanced CD
