I received Aarons’s CD, Everyone Loves to Dance, about two weeks ago and I took it straight into the classroom. We’ve played it several time, enjoying the sweet tunes while doing art activities as well as using it to do large muscle (gross motor) activities. The kids seem to really enjoy the upbeat tunes that Arron Nigel Smith actually created for his own classroom’s curriculum. I also plan to write a few lesson plans around some of the songs, such as rainbow activitives in the ‘Spring. 🙂
Everyone Loves to Dance, features superstar friends Ziggy Marley and Kevin Richardson, and makes it’s digital launch today, January 15, 2010. You can check out a song or two by clicking here . Smith’s songs have been described as “some of the best targeted music for kids today,” and PBS agrees, Aaron was recently invited to join the cast of the Emmy Award-winning PBS Kids show “Between the Lions.” He received the NAPPA and iParenting awards for his first release, Let’s Pretend, in 2005. Most recently, Aaron collaborated with Ziggy Marley and the Palisades Children’s Choir on the new hit Tuff Gong release of Bob Marley songs for kids, B is for Bob.
Arron not only gifted my musical library with his talents but he’s also offered to give away his Everyone Loves to Dance CD to one lucky reader. To enter simply do all or any of the following:
