Pitch Hill: {MEGA BUNDLE} - Teaching Solfege through Storytelling!

Pitch Hill: {MEGA BUNDLE} - Teaching Solfege through Storytelling!

Are you struggling with teaching solfége or looking for a fun, new method for teaching solfége to elementary students? Then look no further! Pitch Hill is for you! In Pitch Hill, each solfège note is a character with his or her own story. For example, Do is a Boxer! He LOVES to box! He wears special head gear and boxing gloves to protect him and when we sing the note that is Do, we show our hands like boxing gloves. Do is very strong and will catch Re if she falls off the roof! (You will have to purchase to hear her story!) The stories provide a way to remember the corresponding hand sign as well as help explain the relationship between individual pitches. Though the system is enhanced by technologies available in many schools (iPads, IWB, etc.) it can also be taught using a simple chalkboard. Pitch Hill was created to overcome the challenge of teaching solfege notes by engaging visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning modalities as well as captivating students with wonderful story telling. Pitch Hill is appropriate for teaching things such as scales, pentatic scales, melody, pitch, singing, and harmony. It is appropriate for people following kodaly, orff, or any other method of music education! (It makes a great alternative to those who are familiar with the music street stories for teaching solfege (solfeggio, solfa, etc). As new materials created specifically for Pitch Hill: Teaching Solfege (volume 1) are created, they will be added to the bundle! Currently this includes the following products: • Pitch Hill Method and Lesson Plans (19!) • Pitch Hill PowerPoint {BUNDLE} • Pitch Hill Flipchart {BUNDLE} • Bulletin Board Printables • Sol Mi Flipchart Activote Assessment • Pitch Hill Character Background Tracks

Music Center: Don't Break the Pitches! - Solfege Pitch Note Reading Game

This is a super fun (yet truly educational!) game based on the popular game, “Don’t Break the Ice!” In this game, students must identify note names and tap out the correct pitch. Don’t be the one to knock out the Penguin! Note: This purchase does not include the actual game “Don’t Break the Ice” and requires that this game is purchased separately. This game is included in the Don’t Break the Music BUNDLE! Your students will LOVE playing this game in Rhythm Centers or as a stand-alone activity! This also makes a great music sub tub plan! You will verbally hear them calling out the names of the notes as they break the ice. It also works great for sub plans! In this resource: • Cards to print out (8 cards to one sheet of paper). • Directions for Teacher. • Directions for Students - print out and put in the packet for students! • Game pieces to print, laminate, and attach to ice pieces.

Are you a new music teacher or a veteran music teacher looking for some fresh ideas? Want to have a fantastic first day in music? Look no further! This is a tried and true set of lessons that will really hook your kids! Kid will leave that first day saying your class is SUPER FUN!

State (GA) GPS Standards, National Music Standards, and National Core Arts Standards are marked. • PowerPoints to guide the lesson for each level. (Google Slides version included) • Links to any resources needed to complete the lesson. (List below) • Essential Questions for you to post in your room. • Video demonstration of the cup games. Description of Lessons • 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Grade - Students will go through normal first day procedures (rules, etc.) and then practice a fun dance song so they can practice what a “space bubble” is. Then students will be introduced to a fun “nonsense” song with a wonderful cup activity. The game is differentiated in levels for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. 3rd Grade plans also include an additional ice breaker game that is great for internalizing rhythm. These lessons are meant to hook my students from the first day. I use the lessons to review things like singing voice, form, tempo, etc. I find that if I can give my class a reputation of “fun” then the students will buy into any lesson I give them in the future! These lessons are designed for my 45 minutes classes but you could modify them for 30 min or hour classes as needed. This is meant to be a guide for your individual situation. Substitutions for any part of the lesson is acceptable.
