Thread Name: Hey Teach'! (Do you use the Digital Tradition?)
Subject: RE: Hey Teach'!
...back to the topic, I use the DT all the time to research lyrics and the background to songs I use as an elementary music teacher. I prefer to use traditional songs rather than "songs composed for elementary music classroom" and the DT is a wonderful source.
I also give an annual assignment to the older children to invent their own musical instrument. Last year (and this year) I gave them a link to the Mudcat Kids and several of them came up with instruments inspired by 'Spaw and others!
