You Can Walk.You Can Talk.You Can Orff! (Gr. 1-6) is a classroom resource for the elementary teacher, both classroom and music specialist. The book sequences musical development with songs and activities beginning in the body with beat (You Can Walk.) and rhythm (You Can Talk.), and expands rhythm through the use of instruments with the Orff process of word substitution, leading into improvisation. The Orff process of word-body percussion-instruments is explained in detail. Also featured is the “Insert an Ostinato” section where teachers and students can choose an ostinato with a challenging level of difficulty to accompany a song.
MobileAll songs and activities have clear, easy-to-follow lesson plans with hints, and extensions, with multiple points of completion for students and teachers. The Teacher Support Section is a wealth of info and how-to’s. This book is packed with practical ideas and suggestions to support your music program!
