This comprehensive guide helps teachers, catechists and music directors make the most of Never Too Young, the first Catholic music resource for children in grades 4-8. Written by popular children's music composer Mark Friedman, with help from Janet Vogt, it's an overflowing storehouse of practical wisdom, ingenious tips and creative activities.
Covers the most important seasons, feasts and school-related events
The book follows the academic and liturgical years, starting with the opening of the school year in September. Chapters cover the most important Church seasons and feasts and special school-related events like Catholic Schools week and graduation. It closes with general themes like Marian feasts, first Eucharist and confirmation.
Song suggestions, lesson plans, choreography, activities
For each theme, Mark and Janet provide song suggestions from Never Too Young, lesson plans, choreography and gestures for some songs, activities, and more. Though catechesis and faith formation receive special emphasis, their suggestions also apply to the liturgy, prayer, playtime and even the home.
Expert guidance from seasoned educators and pastoral ministers
Seasoned educators and pastoral ministers, Mark and Janet bring decades of experience to this project. They also know Never Too Young inside and out, having served as primary consultants during the development of the songbook.
Helpful hints for both new and experienced teachers
New teachers will appreciate Mark and Janet's gentle, casual approach and helpful hints, while veterans will love picking up new ideas from experts in the field. The book is similar in some ways to The Catholic Catechist's Companion, which provides song suggestions from Rise Up and Sing, Second Edition, and Spirit & Song 1.
Maximize the effectiveness of the songs in Never Too Young
A trusty guide for navigating Never Too Young, the Leader's Resource will help everyone who works with middle schoolers to maximize the effectiveness of those 287 songs in school, worship and home settings.
