Build the song collection library for your elementary classroom with these new books, perfect for teaching classroom procedures, character, and citizenship, as well as quality singing and listening skills.

Teach Me Something New Today by Deborah A. Imiolo
What does it look like to learn? What does it sound like? How should students treat each other? The songs in this creative book answer these questions for your students, helping them to understand your expectations. Each song comes with a lesson plan that emphasizes character education and music education, so your students are practicing their music skills and their citizenship skills at the same time. Most songs include optional classroom percussion or barred percussion accompaniments. Recommended for Grades K-3.
