This year, I followed through on an idea I had last year to create a gigantic 15-20' Christmas tree on my windows and have 1st- and 2nd-grade students create "rhythm ornaments." What I didn't anticipate was every other grade wanting to participate as well! Here's how we did it.
Aw, the holiday season! The winter chill in the air; the warm hellos from eager students; piles of student gifts. School closures... Schedule chaos... Oh, and by the way, can you put together an All-School Sing-Along for next week? It's one of my favorite times of the year! So, which songs do you include in your holiday sing-along?
My name is Nick Dolan, and I'm an elementary music teacher and choir director. I'm here to talk about teaching music!
