  4. Great presentation on Connectivity 13. Thanks for presenting ‘authentic’ music integration, and thanks for the reminder to maintain the integrity of the art form.

  5. Carol Brown says:

    Look forward to getting your Norman Rockwell book. Another presenter today also referenced his work as arts fodder for CCSS ELA & Literacy.

  6. Jeanette Hansen says:

    Thanks for your presentation. I am especially interested in getting your Norman Rockwell e- book especially since I had great success using his painting of Ruby Bridges as part of a literature unit this year.

  7. Thank you all for your kind words and comments! I will be in contact very soon. Please let me know if I can help you out with any resources for your classrooms and schools. ~Elizabeth

  8. I have enjoyed browsing through your website. I am a retired primary school teacher and musician. Now author of children’s books about music.
    The seemingly small selection of stories about music available, for the home and the classroom – inspired me to write my own. Fun fascinating stories about music that educate and entertain children of different ages. What I like to call – old fashioned stories that sneak a musical education in the background.
    I am hoping you may be interested in having a look at the books available on my website. They are different – but have stood the test of being used in the classroom.
    cheers Chrissy
