Kid-tested for success, these 15 fun music lessons foster creativity and self-esteem. Author/music educator Rhonda Tucker wrote "Words to Play By" for her K-5 elementary music students. Her poems such as "Daily Vitamins," "Wah!," "The Feeling Sickly Blues," "Elf Mischief," "Improv. Fun," "No More Worries," and others are the basis for her very creative music lessons which teach notation, forms, improvisation, ostinati, syncopation, borduns, changing meters, and other musical concepts. The author includes suggestions for starting a school Orff program. The lessons include reproducible visuals to help students learn their parts. The contents section includes a recommended grade level and focus for each lesson. The author was the recipient of her city's Elementary Teacher of the Year 1999-2000 award, and was nominated for Birmingham, Alabama's Most Distinguished Teacher Award in the same year.
