This page is for parents, teachers, grandparents and all who want to use my songs for activities with children.

Spoken Song Tic Tock Clock

Activity: Make a clock out of paper plates, cardboard, and fasteners. Be Creative and allow the children to draw a face on their personal clock. Put a hole in the middle of the clock and attach two pieces of cardboard for the hands (or use plastic utensils with holes in the handles or be creative) fasten with a fastener. Add the numbers on the dial. Move hands to Tic Tock Clock

Have older students learn fractions while making the clock to see where to put the numbers. This is good for telling time and math. Older students can make more advanced looking clocks with sequins, pictures, games or drawings whatever they want their personal Clock to be. They may even purchase a real clock backing so that it works at home. Have a clock contest in each classroom
Crystal Rainbow is just a beautiful song, and quite magical in the fact that students get to create beautiful rainbows in their home or classroom. The song gives instructions and asks to make a wish on the rainbows (prisms) that are created. This leads to directions N,S,E,W where the sun rises, sets and what time of day we get rainbows from where we hang the crystal. This is also good to introduce compass directions, directions by stars or constellations etc. Be creative

Teaching science, through music.
