A Short Musical Play About Kids' Healthy Habits
Cover your sneeze, please! See the doctor every year. Brush and floss your teeth. Wash your hands. Reinforce healthy habits with simple songs and raps for very young singers. New lyrics have been set to familiar tunes for quick learning, and the connecting rockin' raps spoken by the entire class are sure to be a hit! The Teacher's Book includes piano/vocal arrangements with simple movement ideas. Teach the songs and raps by rote, or use the reproducible pages with lyrics and raps for additional reading challenge. As a bonus, the original song lyrics to these timeless children's melodies are included in the back of the book. The Enhanced CD offers performance and accompaniment-only track recordings with a melody instrument to help guide these young singers, and projectable/printable PDFs of lyrics and raps. For additional vocal help, there is also a Tracks Plus song recording that features the vocals at half volume. Use this to help transition the students from singing with the full version, or have them perform with these tracks if they need a little extra help.
Songs include: Happy, Healthy, Totally!; Cover Your Sneeze, Please!; I Go To the Doctor; When I Brush My Teeth; and These Little Hands. (approx. 15 min., Grades K-1)
