Activities for Rhythmic Development

by Doug Goodkin.

Doug Goodkin has created a unique way to teach music by using the time-tested concept of "name games." Every teacher has used them, and together with the principles of Orff-Schulwerk, Name Games will bring out the best in students on a personal and musical level. Includes a potpourri of games for all age levels, such as "Spelling Name," "Name Stories," "Icky Bicky Soda Cracker," "Rumplestiltskin," "Birthday Groups," and many more. There are opportunities for integrating the curriculum and a developmental process based on the Orff-Schulwerk.
