Sally's Sea of Songs: Los Machetes - Folk Dance Fun! One of my strategies for surviving the last month of school is to get kids moving! The popularity of Cinco de Mayo in recent years gives me a great excuse (as if I needed one!) to teach Los Machetes, a folk dance from the Jalisco region of Mexico.
Music class and Halloween can be a BOOtiful thing! Learn about ways to get your students moving, thinking and creating with ideas like Pass the Pumpkin, There’s a Spider on My Head, Pumpkin Patterns, Jazzy Jack-o-Lanterns and more! Your elementary music students will be “howling” with delight!
