Ah, Ms. Benson you have been MIA for about 10 years now.
Why, yes, I have. Just one year, really, but MIA is true. Why, you ask?
I had a child!
Well, first there was the nausea and all the loveliness of pregnancy, then my handsome little boy was born in May of 2015.
Today, I am excited to share a new resource with you! It's a song I wrote for my students called "The Derby Hat." It describes someone's experience at the Kentucky Derby when he/she comes in contact with a hat so big that it covers the entire park!
The product that I now have available in my Teachers Pay Teachers store includes the sheet music with Orff orchestration, lyrics-only pages, eight Kentucky Derby rhythm cards, Create-Your-Own Derby Hat pages, and a booklet for students to re-write lyrics of my song. I've mostly used the song with second and third grades.
I hope you enjoy it as much as my students and I have! Let me know how it works out for you.
Happy Kentucky Derby season!
