Stories That Sing TOO!

Themes & Variations


Stories That Sing TOO! is a second collection of music and literacy lessons based on 11 storybooks. It includes songs and musical activities for PreK - Grade 5 and activities that integrate literacy and music skills. Your students will love these fun, interactive lessons that allow them to sing, move, and play instruments while learning. These activities are all designed around vibrant, animated stories that children love, full of lively characters and big adventures. These activities will keep your students engaged and listening while they learn music skills, comprehension skills, sequencing skills, new vocabulary, and so much more. If you don’t have all of the storybooks, most are available to read along with on YouTube, or you can purchase them using the QR codes in the book.

Music Objectives are included with each lesson. Students will have a chance to play a variety of rhythm instruments and Orff instruments. They will work in groups to create and move to follow the story in the lesson. Integrating music objectives and storybooks makes for a more interactive learning experience.
