A Rainbows Within Reach Red, White, and Blue Giveaway

Last week I attended the NAEYC conference in Dallas and had the pleasure of meeting Debbie Clement from Rainbows Within Reach. It was so exciting to meet a fellow blogger in person!! I had a great time in Debbie's session singing and moving to songs that help little ones learn to form the letters and strengthen their fine motor skills.

One of my favorite songs that Debbie shared was her book Red, White, and Blue. This song was written by Debbie in the immediate aftermath of 9-11. It is a simple song that is perfect for instilling a sense of patriotism and American pride in your little ones. 

The song is perfect for a study and celebration of Patriot's Day, Constitution Day, Veteran's Day, Memorial Day, and Flag Day. I hate that I missed getting this post out earlier because the song/book is a great resource for teaching your kids about Veteran's day. 

The picture book version and the digital download are both available at Debbie's TPT store. 

Click here to check out the book version on TPT. 

Click here to check out the digital download version on TPT. 

The digital download includes all of the following:

This unit is a 'zip' file that includes the original song "Red, White and Blue" in Mp3 format in two versions. The first variation includes the sung vocals by Debbie Clement against a choral backdrop including both children and professional vocalists. The second version is instrumental only and is included to accompany students to sing in performances or to be used in a song-writing workshop setting. 
Also included in the file are other materials to support the performance of the song, including both a chart of sign language of the lyrics of the song, a chart for music notation including the chords and a set of flag facts. 

Check out this cute group of preschoolers singing Red, White and Blue on You Tube. 




You can also find a wide variety of patriotic Art projects created in response to the song and book at RainbowsWithinReach.

I am so excited because Debbie has offered to give away a digital download copy of Red, White, and Blue to 5 lucky bloggers. All you have to do is comment below and leave your name and email address. The first 5 people to leave a comment and contact information will win the download.
