About the ‘Back to School’ Lessons

Different school districts have different start dates, ranging from the end of July to after Labor Day. The Musicplay song sequence is designed to begin in the first week of September. For teachers whose schools start earlier than September, there are five ‘Back to School’ lessons provided. If your school year begins in August, start with ‘Back to School’ lesson 1. Once September begins, regardless of your start date, use the ‘September Week 1’ lesson.

Teach “Wallflowers”

Wallflowers is an old singing from the UK. A version of the singing game was found in the "The Traditional Games of England, Scotland, and Ireland" published in 1898. Wallflowers are wildflowers that grow in Ireland. In the Musicplay variant of the song, May had the measles. In 1898 the measles was a serious and sometimes fatal disease. Today, measles can be prevented with a vaccine. The students may be able to read the rhythm and melody of the song. If your students do not know solfa, teach the melody by rote.
