I found a really great book called "All Are Welcome" by Alexandra Penfold. It's about how a school is a community where "All Are Welcome", no matter your race, religion, age, gender, size, ability, etc. It promotes tolerance and acceptance, and its words and overall message are beautiful and necessary for children to hear, especially in the current climate. I was inspired to write a song using the words of the book and I'm planning on using this at the beginning of the school year with my classes as I welcome them to music.
Let me know what you think and if you have any ideas on how to use the song/story in a lesson!
Hi there! I'm Mr. Q, an elementary music teacher from Florida. I created this website to be a place where kids can come learn all about music, and teachers can find and share great lessons to use in their music classrooms. I'd love to hear from you! You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or simply comment on any of the blog posts with your ideas!
