"My Heart" from the musical picture book Free to Be Me
1. Listen to "My Heart" from the musical picture book Free to Be Me.
2. Invite young listeners to pay attention to the song’s lyrics and try to remember all the emotions they hear. Make a list of the emotions they remember after a first listen, then complete the list after a second listen.
3. Stand up and perform the actions described in the second line of each verse. Before playing the song, determine together how you
will act out each line. For example, for the line “I smile here, I smile there, everywhere,” you could smile to the right, left, and then in a half-circle.
