"I have used this music for many students int he past 10 years. I especially like to use it for students with motor skills difficulties. You hear the music and the instructions and then it is recorded without the instructions so that you can perform the activitiy as part of an assembly at school or perhaps at a parents night and have the instructions blarring. Special needs/EMH students REALLY enjoy the involvment and have a sense of belonging and peer-ship! The music sounds up to date and the instructions are easy to follow and not presented too quickly. There are many repetitions and the students are able to follow the simple activities. There is a leaflet included to show you the moves when the movement is not clear. This adds nicely to any PE program when the gym is not available and can be intergrated into your Music/Movement units as well."
Pass the beanbag, please...

"When I started teaching preschool in 1992, I had this on record. It is great that it is on CD now. I can't say that I use all of the songs, but I have literally worn out "Pass the Beanbag". I can remember numerous days when the playground was wet, too hot, or the kids where just acting wild- when I would put this song on.
"Pass the Beanbag" is kind of like Hot Potato. Any size group of children sit in a circle on the floor. When the music stops, the person holding the bean bag has won the game. I have had MARATHON listens to "Pass the Bean Bag, until EVERYONE in the class has won. It can really help kill time when you are waiting for kids to be picked up at the end of the day - an there isn't anything to clean up!"
Great and Easy Movement and Song

"I am a new Preschool teacher and I'm not too excited about Music and Movement. This CD is excellant for someone like me. The songs are fun and give easy directions for movement. I made bean bags to go with it. This CD teaches Music, Movement, Coordination, Colors and Math. It's not too bad to listen to either!"
