Happy Teachers Using Our Camp Songs with Orff Accompaniments


Kelsie L. – I am loving this resource. I can do as much or as little as needed for different classes and age groups. My students are engaged and having a ball as we jump into the camping theme for music this year!

Kristin T. – Started using the Baby Shark lesson this week with my primary students and they LOVED it. I love how the science and reading are built in, and everything is so sequential. Very engaging.

Kate S. – This bundle has SO much to offer and you can build several lessons out of each song!

Mr. C – Used this resource at the end of the school year and with a summer school program and all of my students really enjoyed singing and playing these campfire songs!

Amy B. – My students have had a blast with this bundle! What kids don’t like campfire songs!!?! So much fun and now they get to add Orff patterns with it. It’s set up where you can use as much Orff as little as you need based on your kids’ abilities and your instrument setup. LOVE!
