I Can Make Letters

101 Rhythm Instrument Activities for Young ChildrenLetter knowledge means knowing that letters are different from each other and that letters relate to sounds. Children learn through their senses, and they learn best by doing. Practice how different letters look, sound, and feel by making them out of things around the house—crayons, food, popsicle sticks, yarn, or even your bodies! Sing this song after each letter you make.

London Bridge Letters (to the tune of “London Bridges”)
I can make the letter __,
Letter __, letter ___,
I can make the letter __,
With my (crayons, sticks, yarn, body).

Summoning the Pheonix: Poems and Prose About Chinese Musical Instruments by Emily Jiang –

Cover image for Summoning the Phoenix : poems and prose about Chinese musical instrumentsThis book is beautifully done and so interesting.  Each double page spread has a poem and illustration of a child playing a Chinese instrument. I had no idea there were so many different kinds.  The poems are very short and information about each instrument is given.
