Making Music

Farmer Joe and the Music Show by Tony Mitton
With the help of his instrument-playing friends, Farmer Joe has his hens clucking, his pigs dancing, and his cows mooing to a country music show.

"The Drums in the Band" Action Song:
To the tune of "The Wheels on the Bus"

The drums in the band go bam, bam, bam
Bam, bam, bam, bam, bam, bam
The drums in the band go bam, bam, bam
All through the room!

Additional verses:
bells -- ring
horns -- beep

Before John Was a Jazz Giant by Carole Boston Weatherford
This lyrical picture-book biography of John Coltrane focuses on his childhood and how he interpreted sounds before he made his music.

For our second action song, we played "The Body Part Game" from the album Shake, Rattle and Rock by Greg and Steve.  I could not touch my nose to my toes!!!!

Tanka Tanka Skunk! by Steve Webb
Uses animal names to introduce rhythmic language and rhyme, as Tanka the elephant and his friend Skunk play drums to keep the beat.

We had a blast making this noisy craft.
