Integrate elementary music curriculum and language arts. Teach your first – third graders how to spell “August” with this original speech ensemble. While they are learning how to spell August you will also be working on your music curriculum: reinforcing rhythm (quarter notes, quarter rests and 2 eighth notes beamed), call and response, definition of soloist, form, percussion instruments and composition.
This product contains:
• 4 detailed lessons each 6-10 minutes and an original composition/score. The lesson plans include instructions for teaching the speech ensemble and activities to 2nd and/or 3rd grade. Detailed directions on how to create a rhythmic composition for the C section is included. Adaptions and extensions are also addressed.
• 5 detailed lessons each 4-12 minutes and an adapted composition/score are included for teaching the speech ensemble and activities to first grade.
• 7 slides created with PowerPoint 2013 - tested on PowerPoint 2010 (with 1 slide being teacher and/or student interactive) to be used in conjunction with the lessons. You will have everything you need to teach all the lessons. PowerPoints work very well with Smartboards - just touch the board to activate the sound effects and the animations.
It is an excellent piece to address curricular concepts while enjoying making music anytime but especially in August.
• 38 “iconic” pictures and rhythms are included with detailed instructions on how to use them to teach the activities.
