    Lynn Kleiner How did we get so many themes going this concert season?  We love to accommodate requests but we've got it all going in our schools this year: Ocean, Jungle, Mountain, California History, World Travels.  It sure keeps things exciting.

    Lynn Kleiner commented on Lynn Kleiner's video: I love the pitch matching from the large and small owl puppets! Such a great pitch matching activity for the classroom but nice to show that to parents at the concert. Love seeing those cute little trees and puppets to decorate. The flannel plaid shi...  more

    • Lynn Kleiner
      Jennifer Brewer Love this lesson. I'm wondering how I can make it work with my very large classes and very short class times. Class size is between 40-50 in K and 1 and my classes last only 25 minutes. Any suggestions?

    • Lynn Kleiner
      Lynn Kleiner Sounds like too many in one class Jennifer! Yikes! You could certainly sing the song as you are passing them out, having them sing a color and echo their singing voice. The little plastic eggs are so easy to make into shakers so at least you can hav...  more

    Deanna Peters I noticed a post about using MY TRIP TO THE MOUNTAINS as a concert.  Is there more info on how it was put together?  Would it work for 80 plus kids on risers (kinder)?  Thanks for the info.

      Deanna Peters I'd love to see what you did, Sasami.

    • Deanna Peters
      Sasami Ashworth Yes! I know many of the unpitched percussion songs would be ADORABLE with movement instead. Do you have colored scarves? The music box concert plan gave me lots of cute movement ideas with scarves.

    • Deanna Peters
      Deanna Peters I have scarves that would be perfect for the risers. Did you do the songs accapella with just unpitched percussion? You mentioned the plan--was it long enough for a concert or did you have to supplement?
      • April 13
    • Deanna Peters
      Sasami Ashworth On its own its long enough for a concert (especially with the adorable solo singing "The Bear Went Over the Mountain" interludes) but I did add in a Christian song since this was for a private Christan school. Do you have the My Trip to the Mountains book...  more
