Teaching With Orff has partnered with some amazing educators to bring you online workshops designed to provide new ideas for lessons and enhance your teaching, whether your classroom is in person or virtual.
In Our Hearts
During this season of love and gratitude, we are so excited for this online workshop with Bev Willms Best and Roger Sams. They are including oodles of materials so that you’ll have everything you need to teach beautiful lessons for the next few weeks!
Bev’s original songs are based on three picture books that explore themes of love and gratitude. Her corresponding activities include art, movement, chanting, and percussion that all lend themselves to learning in person and online. She and Roger also discuss ways to support social emotional learning whether you’re in person or teaching from afar.
Begin With a Book
Roger Sams shares tried and true picture books that enhance music and movement learning and create a playful environment in your classroom, be it socially distanced in person or remote. He models lessons that include singing, chanting, self-space movement, locomotor movement, rhythmic activities, and basic music literacy. Detailed lesson plans are included as well as ideas for how to modify the activities for diverse learning situations and contemporary challenges.
