A Song to Say “Thank You!”

Have you listened to “Thanks to You” in ClassPlay?

Try this song today!

This groovy and fun song helps students recognize and celebrate the heroes in their lives and in their community. It illustrates the many ways we can and should give thanks to them.

This versatile piece will be a wonderful addition to many different programs. You might sing it as a way to celebrate Veterans Day, include it in your Thanksgiving program, or save it for the end of the year, as a special thank you song!

Teacher Tip: This year, as an added bonus, you might use this song as a way to say thank you to the frontline workers keeping us safe in 2020!

Leading a choir through COVID?

We know that Veterans Day programs, and all programs, might look a little different this year.

As music teachers, we love to gather our students together to make beautiful music. However, new health precautions will necessitate applying new approaches to be effective and inspirational.

Stepping into the world of virtual performances can provide your students with opportunities to share their voices and skills with the community. With student record screens and virtual classrooms, singing and performing music from a distance is no problem!

Consider these tips for leading a choir through COVID!
