This is part of my resources for Caribbean music, focusing on Calypso and Salsa. I'll upload the other genres soon. There&'s the revision guide for each topic as well as the main musical resource for each. I recorded and programmed the Salsa one on logic but could only upload MP3 so I&';ve done a version where you can hear each instrument being added gradually. This works really well in collaboration with the score provided. The tracks for the listening test can be found at the bottom of the test. The Presi is what I used to deliver it - hopefully the youtube parts work! Comments please!
A3 poster outlining some (basic) key features found in 6 different Caribbean styles of music (Merengue, Bachata, Reggae, Calypso, Cha-cha-cha and Salsa).
I designed this poster for an advanced GCSE class who wanted to learn more styles of Caribbean music. Obviously a lot of the points (e.g. instruments) are the same and therefore I have not always repeated these. Instead I tried to put just the key elements or the instruments that stand out the most.
My GCSE class then used this poster to help them identify the style and country of origin of music excerpts in short listening quizzes.
My class really enjoyed using this resource and said that the visuals really helped for revision to, I therefore thought that maybe some other pupils/teachers may also like to use it.
By clicking the website link, you will find a range of activities to teach young pupils or students with severe learning difficulties to play the chime bars.
I have used these activities with a great number of my SEN students and they worked well for most of them as long as they could recognise / match colours.
Please feel free to contact me if you require more sheet music using the chime bars colour scheme.
This is an individualised emotional place mat which was used to support a child with specific and complex needs. The "mood ring" idea was there choice. Can be adapted easily to suit the needs of the child.
This set includes a sport themed bingo game! The game includes 20 boards and calling cards for 2 levels of play. This bingo game includes an easy version of calling cards with just pictures and vocabulary to work on picture identification and vocabulary. The hard version includes hints for each picture to work on receptive language, problem solving, and vocabulary building. My students love to play bingo! It's a great way to work on turn taking. We use bingo for independent group time and one student gets to be "in charge" - they love it!
This game is great to work on thematic vocabulary. It's so important to expose children with language difficulties to a wide range of vocabulary concepts. Great for gym teachers or indoor recess days! Vocabulary includes helmet, uniform, soccer, umpire, scoreboard, and more. This game is fun and engaging! Just laminate or print on card stock and it's ready to go!
