Kelly enjoys working with smaller groups of children in the classroom setting. She will spend a designated amount of time (usually 30-45 minutes) teaching students a song, reading a book, and then doing a group activity of some kind that reinforces the song lyrics (Kindness, positive mindset, etc.)
Writing an Original Song
Another small group activity includes writing an original song. Here are the steps in the songwriting process with a class:
- Brainstorm and vote on a topic.
- Brainstorm the topic: Why is it important?
- Have a rhyming session where we rhyme words from our brainstorming session.
- Create the music side of the project. (In older classes, the students are a part of this process as well.)
The end result is pure excitement each time!
