Learning with Literature in Music: Silly Sally - Solfege / Movement Lesson

(0)
I love bringing Children’s Literature into the music classroom, especially when it can help kids get creative! This lesson uses the book “Silly Sally” by Audrey Wood to teach kids about solfege notes (do, re, mi, and fa) and choreography or creative movement. This is the extended version of a lesson introduced in Pitch Hill! In this lesson, students learn a song based on the words of “Silly Sally” using the pitches do, re, mi, and fa (GREAT way to introduce Fa!). Students then create their own movements to go along with the story introduced in Silly Sally. Suggestions for instrument playing provided as well. The lesson is written for 2nd grade but can be easily modified for other grade levels. … In this resource you will receive: Detailed lesson plans for the lesson based on “Silly Sally.” Engaging PowerPoint to lead your students through practicing the melody and identify solfege in the song. Differentiated worksheets to work on identifying the solfege pitches in the song, “Silly Sally.” … Note: A special thank you to Audrey Wood for granting permission to use their text in this product. If you purchase this, make sure you … Like this product? You will also love: Learning with Literature: Manana Iguana - Lesson plan - Solfege practice!

Music Sub Tub Stuffers: 3-5 Music Substitute Plan - Guido d'Arezzo

(0)
Most teachers would agree taking a sick or person day is harder than actually being at work. Writing music sub plans and preparing music sub tubs and music sub binders are so hard, especially in music and other specials! This is a great print and go plan for 3-5. Students will read a book about the history of music notation and the story of the historical figure, Guido d’Arezzo. Students will review some historical terms, answer discussion questions about the book and then decode a short Gregorian chant music example. Finally, an early finisher Guido themed rhythm coloring sheet is available. … Included in this File EDITABLE lesson plans to put in your sub tub or sub binder. Worksheets for you to copy and put in your sub tub or sub binder. Posters for you to print and laminate to put in your sub tub or sub binder. This is so your sub has something to reference when reviewing Guido with students. MP3 of Ut Quant Laxis, Guido’s first song as well as YouTube video links if you would prefer a video. … Like this product?

This is a great way to get your kids reading rhythm! … In this set you will get the self-advancing PowerPoint for the following songs: “Jingle Bell Rock” by Bobby Helms “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” - by Andy Williams “Sleigh Ride” sung by the Ronettes … In addition, you will receive detailed lesson plans for 5th grade using Georgia GPS standards, National Music Standards, and National Core Arts standards that are ready to print and use, and yet still editable for your individual teaching needs. You will also receive rehearsal versions of each PowerPoint presentation that do not self-advance so that you may rehearse the rhythm patterns with students before performing. … NOTE: You will NOT receive the audio files (this would be illegal!), but I have directed you on where to purchase the files on iTunes and how to attach them to PowerPoint. … See a screencast here on how to attach audio files to PowerPoint for this file and rhythm basketball files. Neither Jingle Bell Rock nor Sleigh Ride mention the word “Christmas” so these may be perfect for those who cannot use the word Christmas in their lessons. Jingle Bell Rock uses the “syncopa” syncopation rhythm. There are two versions of “Sleigh Ride” - one that uses sixteenth notes, and sixteenth/eighth note combinations. I also included an easier version without sixteenth notes. Please download the preview to see all rhythms included. … Like this product?
