Holiday Orff Source

Themes & Variations

SKU: 735

The Holiday Orff Source includes 14 lessons using the Orff process and instruments that vary from simple songs for PreK-K-1 to accompany a storybook, to interesting instrumental arrangements for older students. The students will have opportunities in the lessons to sing, play, move, listen, and improvise. Many songs include movement suggestions using dance, scarves, or improvising, and of course, students are encouraged to create their own. There are several traditional Christmas songs and a Hanukkah song, but most selections are seasonal.
