The Learning Tree Store Blog is an on-line haven for meaningful dialogues on issues concerning children, parents and teachers.
By Carol Hartery, The Learning Tree Store Blog, January 6, 2010
Hi Everyone! It’s me again. Carol, from The Learning Tree Store in Stoneham, MA. I have decided to continue to write about music in a few more blogs.
One of my favorite cds from The Learning Station is Sift and Splash. This unique cd is great to use with your sand and water tables and for activities in your science area. You may want to create mini sandboxes for each student by putting an inch or two of sand in plastic “shoeboxes” for them to use during group time. Your students can “play” with the sand in their sandboxes as they sing, “Sand Person” and “Sand Art”. If you spray a little water on the sand your students could practice writing numbers and letters and drawing shapes in the sand.
I have created a workmat and a set of 4 cards for your students to use with “Float or Sink” from the Sift and Splash cd. You will also need a tub of water, a metal spoon, a little cup, a little rock, and a wooden block for this activity. Please visit The Learning Tree Store’s Activity page for instructions and the reproducible pages I have created for you.

“My class knows every song by heart. They insisted on singing Finger Fish at our family night and the parents all wanted to know where to buy it. Keep pumping out the great tunes!”
