We started off this session of Story Explorers with a beat bop, bing bang, boom boom boom. I Got the Rhythm by Connie Schofield-Morrison is a CLEL Bell winner in the Every Child Ready to Read 2 category of Singing. I love the music, movement, and multiculturalism in this book.
Let’s Get the Rhythm of our Knees
Let’s get the rhythm of our knees (x3)
If you please
Let’s get the rhythm of our knees
Shoulders… Big boulders..
Heads… Oh dread..
Feet… How neat…
Read I Got the Rhythm.
We then made our own instruments to create our own beat.
We made tambourines out of paper plates like this post.
We made guitars out of tissue boxes like this.
We made shakers out of prescription bottles and rice and beans. The kids could hear the difference in sounds between the ones filled with rice and the ones filled with beans. We decorated the bottles with stickers and deco tape.
