Climate Change and “Green Energy”

As children sing and read about the Endangered and Threatened Species in my book, there is a pattern. The first page looks at the problem that each species is encountering. The second page offers suggestions of what “Kids Can” do (and parents too). In this scenario, Climate Change becomes a reality for the Polar Bears […]

Save the Arctic—Save Polar Bears

I thought I would include two of the pages from my songbook, Endangered, on the state of Polar Bears. With the March on Climate Change coming up tomorrow not only in Washington, D.C., but around the country, I thought these paired pages were very timely. The lyrics to my haunting melody are in the top […]

Be Part of the Solution

Be Part of the Solution

This is one of the first pages in my songbook, Endangered. It not only shares the background of where the idea came from, but begins the journey of what “Kids Can” do to make a difference in the world.

Ways that “Kids Can” Make a Difference

I will be sharing ways that “Kids Can” make a difference through my various “Songbooks of Science.” The first title I’ll be featuring is Endangered. It was inspired by a trip I had taken off the coast of Cape Cod. The scientists onboard the International Wildlife Coalition vessel were examining the affect humans have on humpback whales. […]

“Winter’s Gift” – Level D

Being a permanent resident of Buffalo, snow is a given. When I started thinking about the positive impact of snow on our region, it truly is a gift! Your children will discover how burrowing animals; plant roots, streambeds and children welcome Winter’s Gift while learning about crystals and symmetry. I’ve determined the Fountas & Pinnell […]

“Gravity” – Level D

As a previous Kindergarten teacher, I often included the Nursery Rhymes in the shared reading component of my day. Just to take you back to the conception of this songbook, I was driving to Buffalo on the Massachusetts Turnpike when I started to think about the concept of gravity and all of the things that fall […]

“Munch, Munch, Munch” – Level D

As the butterflies begin to visit our summer gardens on Cape Cod, I’m reminded of an eco-trip I took with our daughter Lauren. Our destination was a Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary located within a trans volcanic range of mountains in Michoacán, Mexico. Every fall, millions of Monarchs migrate thousands of miles to the microclimate in the […]

Me in Front of Tree

“Save a Tree for Me” – Level D

My next songbook I’d like to highlight is Save a Tree for Me. I’ve determined the Fountas & Pinnell Reading Level for this title to be Level D based on the characteristics I’ve noted below. It would be most appropriate for ages 4 – 7 and beginning first grade readers. (Of course, PreK through second […]

“B-B-B-Bats” – Level G

“B-B-B-Bats” is a great way to connect curriculum as children learn about the interdependency of bats in their unique habitats, while acquiring new reading skills! The repeated hook and rhyming of this songbook’s lyrics are an invitation to join in the adventure! I’ve determined the Fountas & Pinnell Reading Level for this title to be Level G […]

The classroom teacher now has the opportunity to share it on any Apple device (iPad or MacBook) as well as in student and Big Book forms. Children are introduced to spelling and strengthen their skill […]
