by Cristi Cary Miller and Jennifer Bennett.
Folk tales come alive with sound and movement in this creative cross curricular resource perfect for the classroom or on stage. Renowned educator and clinician, Cristi Cary Miller provides instructive teaching tips on how to dramatize each of the 8 interactive stories which are enhanced with musical sound effects played by the students for added color and vision, and a meaningful moral behind each tale for all who participate and listen! A variety of reproducibles are included for ease in preparation and presentation, including the stories and sound effects using picture icons and original songs that accompany the stores, each complete with Orff/Piano arrangements.
