As part of our Earth Day celebration, my class listens to Louis Armstrong singing What a Wonderful World. I LOVE this song. After we listen to the music (laying on our backs with our eyes closed) at least 2 times, we generate a list of pictures we could draw to illustrate the song. I then ask for volunteers for each idea. This year, I printed the lyrics right on watercolor paper. I will give each child one page and have them illustrate their page with crayons. They will then use diluted watercolors to paint over the whole page. It really does make a beautiful book. Some years I have put a pocket page on the back of our book for a cd of the song. I then send the book home each night with a different child.
This is the google doc of this year's book: What a Wonderful World Book. If you have trouble uploading it, please email me and I will send you the word document.
