Best of SPRING! my spring favorites all in one place!


Today I want to share with you ALL OF MY FAVORITE freebies, spring printables, go-to songs, instruments, props, spring playlist, (and more!) - in one place!! Let's jump in!!



FREE Printable for Hey, Little Wiggle Worm (+ links for a presentation version and recording!)

Hey, Little Wiggle Worm! is now live wherever you stream or download music! Think, blues meets children's music (the kids will LOVE the snail part at the end)!!!

 

To celebrate, I'm sharing the printable visual for FREE (which includes the chord sheet PLUS a link to an animated presentation version you can click through along with the song on a classroom screen or tablet)!!!


psst! follow me (patina jackson) as an artist wherever you stream and you'll be the first to know when a new song comes out!

 

Listen on Spotify.

Listen on Apple Music.

Listen on YouTubeMusic.

Listen on Amazon Music.


Here are some fun ways to use the song! 

 

  • Play the recording or sing a capella as you finger trace the paths of the bugs and identify their names (verbally, by sign, on a communication device, etc.)!

 

  • Emphasize verbalization of the silly bug sounds OR add the repeated words, like "buzz" or "hop," to a button or device!

 

  • MOVE! Wiggle your whole body with the worm, flap your wings (chicken style) as you buzz around the room, spread your arms all the way out as you gracefully glide and flutter like a butter fly, and get your hop-pies out as you jump like a grasshopper! Oh, and don't forget to go slow-mo like a crawling snail - silly faces are a must!

 

  • Show the animated presentation slides (linked in the free printable below!) for a visual while you dance and sing!
