Come Join the Circle - LessonSongs for Peacemaking
Paulette Meier 
Full Album Download with Printables - Downloadable Songbook

This award winning collection by peace educator and singer/songwriter Paulette Meier is unusual in its appeal to both young and older students. The 14 songs, full of hope and energy, build unity, appreciation for diversity, and skills for resolving conflict. The songs offer important skills and concepts in social-emotional learning, without talking down to kids. Seven extra karaoke-style sing along tracks are included with this download.

Based on real-life issues facing children, Meier's songs address topics such as peer pressure and namebrand clothing, boy's needing to act tough, and the hurt and anger around a broken confidence. The diverse music and mix of performers (Hip-hop, gospel, Celtic, blues and more.) reinforce the message of inclusion that the lyrics superbly communicate. A chorus of inner city children add their voices to the mix, inviting students to sing along.

"Come Join the Circle is absolutely exceptional. Every classroom across America should have it! The wisdom in it is priceless." - Naomi Drew, teacher, author, Learning the Skills of Peacemaking

"These warm and wonderful songs make children want to move, think, smile and learn new ways to live. I'm thrilled to have this resource for my classroom!" - Jeanne Halladay, elementary teacher
