If you can read it rhythmically, you will be stronger musically. That's the premise of this songbook that features 10 different rhythm band instruments: shakers, castanets, rhythm sticks, cymbals, triangle, woodblock, drum, maracas, sandpaper blocks and tambourine. Have some students sing, some play along then trade!
The Teacher's Handbook includes Reproducible Student Song Sheets with Rhythm Band Parts, plus a handy 'how-to' guide to playing the instruments. Newly added, the Enhanced CD features fresh recordings with kids' voices plus reproducible PDF files of all the Student Pages.
