|Ear Worm by Jo Knowles - Click to get the book!|
The possibilities are endless with this musical book!
You could easily just read it and have fun with each of the ear worms our worm friend comes across.

As we all know, teacher-made orffestrations can be fun, but it is even more awesome to have the kids make it up! Split your class into 5 groups and then give each an animal. They can then give their animal's ear worm a melody using a Xylo set up in pentatonic, unpitched percussion, or use chrome music lab in the pentatonic mode. You choose or they choose! Once each group has created their melody and mastered playing/ saying you can combine them all together as one great big ostinato song!
Either the teacher-made orffestration, or student-made song would be an adorable performance piece. Ideas are already spinning about an Ear Worm themed concert. Not only could you perform this book, but also perform songs/ routines to other "Ear Worm" songs. Bruno, anyone???
