THE SINGING CLASSROOM by Deborah Skydell Pasternack is a highly acclaimed searchable website of songs, games, dances, videos and animations designed to help you teach your PreK-6 music classes. Pasternack, an experienced teacher and certified Kodály instructor, demonstrates the activities and songs through easy-to-follow live video and charming animations, with lesson plans and resources to download. Over 150 carefully curated songs and activities, with more being added regularly, cover everything from familiar tunes to holiday songs to songs from other countries, with original language and translations. All songs, games, movement, dance and activities have clearly defined pedagogical goals which support National Standards.
The Singing Classroom integrates with any existing curriculum, or can even serve as a curruculum on its own. Search the database to find activities by grade level, solfege, genre, holiday, topic, movement, meter, mode or scale, instrument, parts singing, rhythm, composing, and more! Videos show effective ways of introducing and teaching songs and games, and how to avoid common pitfalls. The beautifully minimalistic follow-the-dot and bunny animations show teachers and students visually and non-verbally how to do the games and dances. A huge time saver and superb value for busy teachers. Audios, video demos, animations, lessons, and downloadable scores, lyrics, posters and manipulatives make this a one-stop shop for music classes. Highly recommended!
