Organized Chaos Music


This set comes with a list of concepts and skills to cover, lesson ideas to teach each concept or skill, and accompanying materials (links to free recordings and directions, printable worksheets, assessment rubrics, powerpoints and visuals etc) for the entire month of September for 5th grade. This resource is designed to be adapted to a variety of teaching needs, so the material is organized by concept within each month rather than sequential, scripted lessons (a sample lesson sequence is included for your reference)- you can design your own specific lesson plans based on the standards you need to address, the amount of class time you have, and the students you have in your classes. The content and materials you need to teach the lessons are all included.

This set is a FREE download- if you find it useful, you may be interested in the Elementary General Music Curriculum BUNDLE (K-6), which includes all of the resources for every grade K-6 for the entire school year at a discount!

The materials in this set are the ones I use in my own classroom. My teaching is based on training in a variety of methodologies including Orff, Kodaly, Dalcroze, and Suzuki, and I am careful to incorporate a wide range of learning styles and interests in my lessons. This set can be used as a stand-alone curriculum- there is enough material to cover the four 60-minute lessons that I see the students in September- or you can pick and choose your favorites to incorporate into other curricula you may already be using.

Included in this set:

A description of the lesson activities for each grade, organized within each grade by skill/concept taught (fully-editable word document and PDF formats)

A sample lesson sequence listing which activities I teach each lesson (word and PDF)

An assessment rubric

Slides and visuals to use with the lessons (powerpoint and PDF)

Worksheets and other printables to use with the lessons (PDF)

A song reference, with each song used in the lessons notated for your reference (word document- notated songs are JPG image files)

Fillable lesson plan template based on the National Core Arts Standards for the United States (fillable PDF form)
