Synopsis

The Threes Three Rocking Crocs Making Music with Traditional Stories by Kaye Umansky, Helen MacGregor

Three Rocking Crocs is a glorious and instantly accessible collection of traditional stories, retold with musical developments. They make excellent classroom projects and can lead to engaging assembly performances. The glorious and instantly accessible Threes series - Three Tapping Teddies, Three Singing Pigs, Three Rapping Rats - rocks into action again with this fine new collection of traditional stories, retold with musical developments for classroom or assembly. Aimed at children at the top end of primary, the stories are well suited to the age level, and the musical developments are challenging, while never forgetting that they are for generalist teachers to deliver. The eight stories, which range from the hilarious to the downright scary, include Beauty and the Beast, The Frog Prince, Theseus and the Minotaur, Dick Whittington and Baba Yaga. They make excellent classroom projects and can lead to engaging performances. Excellent alternative material for users of Music Express Years 5 and 6.
