After reading his “Ultimate Classroom Wishlist” I reached out to David to see if had a stretchy band – and after finding out he didn’t, sent the connect-a-stretchy bands his way! So, I’m going to include some of his suggestions from that list of resources that Bear Paw Creek carries.

I love teaching creative movement but find that sometimes students need a little support to understand the abstract concepts involved. Through the use of the PowerPoint lessons, lesson extension activities, and pathway flash cards, students should be able to identify, mimic, and create their own movement pathways. This resource kit was created to help students and teachers think about pathways (floor path) and the possibilities for creative movement.
60 different locomotor and nonlocomotor movement words to inspire, instruct, and reference! These easy to print cards are perfect for a movement word wall in the music room, gym, or dance studio. Use the words to inspire kids and give them a springboard as they create new dances and movement pieces. Great for a word wall or use as flash cards.
Here are some of my all-time favorite folk songs with frontier and westward expansion themes bundled with all the resources that I use to teach the song. This “Favorite Folk Song” kit is intended to help you teach the folk song and reinforce historical content and vocabulary at the same time. The set can be printed out and posted on a bulletin board or used as reference cards as you teach the lesson. I know there are some folks on carts or who primarily use digital projectors so I’ve included a PowerPoint format of the set as well.
This resource is a fun addition for any class that is exploring their vocal range and the connections between high/low. Each PDF includes 15 exploration pages including 5 “make your own” vocal slides. Children can use their voices to match the path of the characters in the PDF and even get the chance to create their own paths!
