What's different about these glyphs is that a variety of genres are represented. Jazz, blues, rock and roll, hip hop, pop and opera are all represented in this set.
Mix it Up
I love this Jazz Mixer presented by Smithsonian Folkways. Although I would present this on my Smartboard, it would also work on iPads or laptops as part of a workstations rotation.
Sing Me a Story, Read Me a Song
There are SO many great books to use to celebrate the rich musical heritage of our great nation. Here are a few of my favorites:
Follow the Drinking Gourd
Read it. Sing it. Put it in your reading workstation because kids will want to read it again and again.
Max Found Two Sticks
Wow! Love this book! I give students drum sticks or chopsticks (much quieter and a novelty for the students). As we read through the story they will imitate the sounds that Max's sticks make with their own. Often we will warm up by echo playing rhythms.
