WWW.SINGPLAYCREATE.COM Hey friends! I hope you've noticed- I've shortened the name of my store to SING-PLAY-CREATE! And. ....

About Me

   Hey Friends,
I'm Sandra-the creator behind Sing Play Create, and my passion is all about providing creative and original resources for teachers who want to have inspiring, fun and joyful learning moments with their students.  I'm a music teacher, mom and grandma and love to write music, make up games and make music. My passion is creating materials to help my fellow teachers in the trenches, have positive and rewarding experiences with their students.

CAN YOU RELATE TO THIS?


  • Being so tired from dancing all day that you fall asleep watching TV?
  • Go a bit crazy planning for music programs and teaching seven grade levels every day?
  • Crave Dark chocolate on the weeks before the holiday breaks?
  • Take up Yoga and Meditation to help with stress and fitness?
  • Use more and more sign language to preserve your voice for teaching?
  • Get out of town and into nature during every break?
  • Want to be around family and friends in the summer?



If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you and I have a lot in common.
I know that a teacher's job is hard-demanding-never ends-  So I began putting together my songs, lesson plans, activities for movement, and literacy resources with songs and movement in them to help teachers have access to original and creative materials in their classrooms that would make their job EASIER. 
I started my TPT store so that I could help you by providing ready made, effective, standards based resources that work for today's students.
You and I both know that creative learning opportunities empower students across all subject areas. 
I also believe that Active and Engaging activities are the best way to help students learn. Sing Play Create Resources are perfect for Home school, Preschool, Music and Elementary School Teachers. 

Resources include GAMES, MUSIC, and LITERACY products.
I've been a General Music teacher for 16 years and love it still. I love singing and playing with the children. I love hearing their sweet voices sing songs from the heart. I love to share in their achievements as learners and performers. It brings great joy--and I feel privileged to be a part of their elementary school experience. My wish is that all teachers would incorporate the ARTS into their classroom teaching so that children can sing-play-LIVE creatively. 
I'm also a grandma, a mom and wife. I have 4 sons who are now all grown up!  I have 4 grandchildren too.

I've been writing songs since I was a kid and playing instruments too. Though my parents couldn't afford lessons, I taught myself guitar and began performing for any and every event possible. In junior high and high school I was selected to be in the top choirs, though only a sophomore.
I loved performing in musicals and singing acapella too.
I'm very eclectic in my likes and experiences with music. I even studied songwriting and pitched songs in L.A. and Nashville. 
But my hearts really with children. I've directed many performing groups and been able to watch shy children take the stage and students who couldn't stay on pitch, sing a solo (on pitch).
I feel like I've lived the ultimate creative life and providing original materials for other teachers brings me great joy-and I hope it does for your students too.

Our little family lived in Japan for 6 years. There I learned to compose music on the computer. I also gained a love for multi-cultural music and people around the world. I learned that music really does connect us and is our common language.



These are 2 of my 4 sons.
Here we are at Tokyo, Disneyland. You can guess pretty easily what decade this was by my sun glasses and my hair do- 

As my children got older I was able to pick up some sports that I could do alone. I love to road bike and have been able to ride some 80 milers and many shorter distances. 
I think it super important to take breaks and get back to nature. Being outdoors inspires creativity!

 I also love to dance, do pilates, yoga and, hike and bike. 

You'll find creative resources in my store to support your music curriculum and I have Literacy resources with scripts, songs, poems and writing activities, along with games for any classroom. 

For music teachers I created the Music Essentials Curriculum Resourceespecially for New and or Experienced teachers who are looking for songs, games and lessons that will provide a basic framework for your music classroom. It's flexible and blends incredibly well with Orff and Kodaly based classrooms. In fact, you'll find the ALL of my resources can easily blended into your current curriculum. The Music Class Essentials Basic Package has enough materials to kick start your curriculum with songs and games for every grade level K-6. 

Elementary teachers are loving the Games and Brain Breaks that I've created for K-6 classrooms. 
My goal is to continue to seek ways to make learning fun and active and resources that make a teacher's life easier! I'm putting all that creative energy to good use. 
Thanks for stopping by my website. I would love to get to know you. I hope you'll take a minute and subscribe to my newsletter for access to the resource library and monthly free resources.
