NEW Freddie the Frog: Beyond the Books | Finally Here!

NEW Teacher’s Book!

[The information below is taken from Sharon’s e-newsletter announcement that the long-awaited book, Freddie the Frog: Beyond the Books is finally in print. Get one now, for the beginning of your school year!]

From Sharon: How do I teach music beyond the Freddie the Frog storybooks?

The storybooks are just the introduction and the connection to Freddie.  Then, the learning really begins with Freddie introducing games, songs, and activities that always build on the foundation of the stories. Kids want to learn anything that Freddie thinks is fun!

The NEW Teacher’s Book outlines the 14 sequential lessons that I developed to teach music concepts, utilizing the storybooks and far beyond. The lessons include when and at what grade levels to introduce each book, how to introduce and review key concepts.  Plus, extension lessons that reinforce the learning.

It comes with a CD-Rom that includes:

Reproducible Student Flashcards

25 Coloring Pages

3 Interactive Whiteboard Lesson flipcharts/PPT files

Freddie the Frog® ClipArt

Assessment Report Sheet

Assessment Teacher Files

Have You Met Freddie the Frog? 

Freddie the Frog is an elementary music sensation! He’s a music teacher’s best friend, especially in teaching preschool through third grade students the basic elements of music.

Using the 14″ hand puppet, in conjunction with the storybooks (written by Sharon Burch; illustrated by Tiffany Harris), is a fun, creative, engaging way to introduce treble clef, bass clef, tempo, beats, rhythm, and more.

The first book in the series is Freddie the Frog and the Thump in the Night, where Freddie explores Treble Clef Island and discovers big adventures. The treble clef comes alive as a map of where Freddie lives, and the various lines and spaces represent each part of the story.

In Freddie the Frog and the Bass Clef Monster, Freddie’s adventures continue, when he awakens from hiberanation to discover that he is not on his beloved Treble Clef Island. As he searches for home, he discovers dancing bees, a moonlit cocoon garden, a fire-breathing dragon and the Bass Clef monster. Here, too, lines and spaces represent a map of this eerie adventure, and sound effects and music bring it to life.

The series’ third installment is Freddie the Frog and the Mysterious Wahooooo, where Freddie and his best friend, Eli the Elephant discover the tempo, rhythm and beats of Tempo Island. Eli and Freddie are perfect in introducing kids to the joys of playing rhythm instruments.

Freddie the Frog and the Secret of Crater Island, the fourth in the series (so far), teaches six note names and completes the treble clef staff that was first introduced in Freddie the Frog and the the Thump in the Night.

All the books include an audio CD with story narration and bonus sing-a-long songs. In addition, there are supplemental teaching aids available, including flash card sets, a rhythm game, and posters.
