This workshop showcases specific elementary level books that feature the use of rhythm and accompanying musical activities. Suggestions include rhythmic repetition of phrases, repetitive choruses that can be sung throughout a book, chants that encourage rhythm and dynamics, and use of simple musical instruments. Even the non-musical teacher will leave this workshop eager to incorporate music in his or her classroom.
