Now I'm looking forward to next week, when our first graders will travel to a local retirement home and perform on Valentine's Day. The students are very excited, and they are working hard to learn all of the songs. They even practice at home by going to our school music web page and looking at pictures of the PowerPoint slides that we use in class. Since I am a visual learner, I can relate to the way some students find it easier to learn lyrics when they can visualize how they looked in a picture. I also try to find clipart and photos to make the presentations engaging for the learners.
Here are a couple of songs that we will be performing this week. You might already use some of these for Valentine's Day activities. Feel free to copy and paste the images into your own Powerpoint presentations.
You Are My Sunshine/Valentine
Mail Myself to You (By Woody Guthrie)
I hope your Valentine's Day is filled with fun!
