Songs to Educate, a versatile arts integration resource for educators, presents its new “Song of the Week” Series. The first piece to be highlighted is called "Champions Of Your Song", which is a love song to Mother Earth. It introduces students to the idea of being a champion for something important; to be a voice for that which cannot speak for itself. In joyful evocation, this song encourages the listener to be a defender and champion for the Earth.
The imagery in the verses naturally evoke movement theater. Children love enacting songs and creating choreography that tells a story they can relate to. When children create the movements to a song, it helps to make it their own.
Talking Hands Talking Feet songs serve as a springboard for exploration into a wide array of subjects. SongsToEducate.com is designed to help teachers locate and use songs which correlate with their curricular requirements.
Each "song of the week" release will explore a subject through song, accompanied by stories, movement theater primers and research ideas.
Talking Hands Talking Feet founders Paul and Melanie Zeir do 12-week performing arts programs in public and private schools. These original curriculum based programs are funded by the National Endowment For The Arts and constitute the 'laboratory' for a new movement and method of education. The fruits of this process have become a full library constituting the online resource for educators world wide: SongsToEducate.com.
