Save your precious planning time! This resource contains 18 very detailed lessons with a pacing guide, unit plans, and a course curriculum map. It is connected to common core and uses the North Carolina Essential Standards. I use this every time I teach! Our school is redesigning curriculum to fit the Backwards by Design model. The 3rd grade plan is sequentially based to follow 1st and 2nd grade. Each lesson aligns with common core curriculum and incorporates elements of Kodally and Orff methodology, and includes emphasis on tonal ear training, sight reading, improvisation and composition, as well as musical history and sociology. I try to integrate with classrooms teachers as much as possible, specializing in math and literacy musical integration. Learning in this curriculum is grouped into three units, Rhythm, Pitch, and Orchestra. Resources I rely on in this grade include the Denise Gagne Music Play curriculum for 3rd grade, Music K-8 magazine, and performance music by Walt Hampton, book one.
I hope you enjoy my work!
