“Silly & Serious” for Early Childhood

recommended by Jen Sper, School Choral and Classroom Music Specialist

Mari Schay’s Busy Bodies, Busy Brains series is a must-have resource for preschool and early elementary teachers! Research-driven and classroom-tested, each book in the series contains four thematic units, each consisting of eight lesson components which will develop musicianship while reinforcing general classroom curriculum. The child-centered and playful music-making activities include many favorite songs and rhymes as well as suggested picture books related to each theme.

New in the series this year:
Silly and Series by Mari Schay
Units include: “Silly Stuff,” “Sticky & Stinky Stuff,” “ABC & 1-2-3,” and “Time for a Rhyme.” All lessons are aligned with Common Core, NAfME, and Head Start standards.

Don’t miss the other books in the “Busy Bodies, Busy Brains” series – The Music in Me and You and Up, Up, and Away! – and lots more resources from Mari Schay, including Listen, Sing, Rattle, Ding, Sing, Drum, Play, and Strum, Tube Jams, Behind Bars, Poetic License, and Sing and Play the Global Way.
