Do the Weather Wiggle with Stormin Bob Swanson
He's not just a weatherman-he's a one-man band! Now your students can sing, dance, and learn along with this musical meteorologist. A former high school science teacher, television meteorologist, and now assistant weather editor for USA TODAY, Bob Swanson writes weather music in a variety of musical styles from folk to polka to blues to bluegrass to rap-on a mandolin, no less! The 10 songs feature several audience 'precipitation' numbers that will engage your students in the learning process. Here's what teachers are saying about Bob's music-- I want to thank you for coming to Carter's Valley Elementary. The students enjoyed your visit and they love the CD. The have asked me to play it every day. Their favorite song is 'How Hot is It?'--Mary Ann Davis, Carter's Valley Elementary How can I thank you enough for coming to Mountain City today and performing for two of 'my' schools? The kids absolutely loved you and so did the teachers. Your 'show' is just great!! I listened to your [demo] CD on the way home from Shady and it is wonderful. I can't wait to get the 'real' copy, autographed and all!!!!--Lois Jolly, Music Teacher, Johnson County Schools We, in Johnson City, are richly blessed to have a resource like Bob Swanson. Not only is he a knowledgeable meteorologist, he is a positive role model for young children. He encourages them to learn to read, write, study science, and master math skills. His weather presentations are informative and appropriate for primary students.--Deb West, First Grade, University School.
