Parade Song

Click here to download!

The parade song is an MP3 audio file that you can download for free to use in the classroom (or at home). The song is almost 7 minutes long and is designed to allow children to march around the room after reading Drummy Drum’s story. The students are encouraged to act out and sing the noises of their favorite instrument as they parade around the room. This is a great way to get them up and moving after sitting and reading the book. Then after marching around they can sit and go into some fun worksheets (above) that are still related to Drummy and music.


Get the audiobook here!

The audiobook accompanies the main story of Drummy Drum. For a classroom setting this allows the teacher to present the book to their class with entertaining sounds and page turn guides. This means that the book can be facing toward the students while being presented to the class, rather than the teacher reading it first and then showing the students. So go check it out! You can pay whatever you want for this great audiobook!

Don’t forget to check out the audiobook, coloring book, and activities that follow Drummy’s story!

The Drummond novel also includes a classroom assignment sheet with questions and a book report guide!
