K-5 music lessons for the beginning of the year. Includes: rules, quarter notes, soft and loud, solfege, Kodaly activities, and Dalcroze activities.
Students will make inferences using pictorial graphs, pictures, and vocabulary signs.
Multi-lesson approach to visually, aurally, and kinesthetically teach solfege. Includes national standards for music and TEKs.
In this lesson, students learn to read analog and digital clocks.
This lesson is used for main idea and sequencing. It uses a comprehension based question as the center focus of the lesson to achieve the goals set out in the objective.
This lesson uses a story to not only prepare fast/slow, but also re-enforce dynamics, timbre (adult vs. children voices), and steady beat.
Improvisational story for students
Using speech and chants to help students play rhythms.
This is a full class lesson on reading and creating bare and picture graphs (TEK 2.11) (Common Core 2.MD.D.10 and 3.MD.B.3). Students will create their own graphs and interpret the data. Student
assessment for loud and soft using visuals, acting, and singing
Students demonstrate soft and loud by using their imagination.
Using a story with music from Africa to help students sing soft and loud.
This scope and sequence follows the previous one in this profile.
Teaching subdivision with movement allows students to physically experience time-space-energy of rhythm. This lesson takes the students on a pretend field trip to a farm. Here, they will pick berries, milk cows, sweat, and brush horses
Precursor to using rulers to measure, this lessons allows students to use real-life measure tools to estimate objects
This lesson follows the Subdivision Farm lesson. Similarly, students in this lesson will experience subdivision aurally and kinesthetically.
This lesson gives ideas for keeping steady beat, performing accented beats, and performing rests. The ultimate goal of the lesson is to make abstract concepts of time, space, and energy become concrete.
