Songs in a Snap! are when songs are given that little something extra….
that extra “snap!”
Why not use dog bones as rhythm sticks in “This Old Man”?
Why not use bandanas to bounce to the beat in “Skip to my Lou”?
Why not use stuffed animals in songs about animals?
Why not use plastic plates and pretend they are tambourines, drums, steering wheels, hats or whatever we want them to be in a song?
Why not ?…
Children remember what they do! I always tell myself before I teach a song…
See it! Say it! Do it!
You want your learners to say,
” Can we sing that song we sang with the ____ again?
Start thinking about what you can add to ordinary songs to give them that extra
I guarantee you once you get started you won’t want to stop!
if it is worth singing,
then sing it with a “Snap”!
