I will use the machine to help teach song lyrics from each week's Song of the Week. We start and end our day in song. I teach figurative language (similes and metaphors), rhyme and repetition and more through song. Most importantly, I use each song to build our classroom community. Students love to sing! Even the shy, quiet kids start to join in after they know they are safe. Songs like Compass, Firework, Brave, and Stand in the Light are just a few that help me build that bond the first month of school. The owl pellets are used as an extension activity to build teamwork. I rarely order them because of the expense.
