Product Description
An elementary music lesson plan that addresses the Orff and Kodaly music curriculum while incorporating singing, rhythm, melody, movement, instruments and form! The song has been extended with a B section so you are able to address melodic direction in addition to eighth notes/quarter notes and do mi sol la. Your students will love the engaging activities included in the lesson plan and the PowerPoint.

The set of Lesson Plans and PowerPoint interactive slides include:

• 5 lessons each 8-15 minutes (8 pdf pages) plus an Orff arrangement (2 pgs). The lesson plans include detailed instructions for teaching the song, movement, rhythmic and melodic activities, boomwhacker ostinato and Orff ensemble to first and third grade. Additional adaptions and extensions are also addressed.

• 20 slides created with PowerPoint 2013 (with 16 slides being student interactive) may be used to reinforce melodic direction, rhythmic reading and melodic reading. You will have everything you need to teach all the lessons. The PowerPoint also works well with Smartboards!

It is a perfect piece to add to a performance/concert or just to sing and dance in music class addressing curricular concepts as appropriate. You do not need to utilize the Orff arrangement in order to address curricular concepts while your class enjoys making music with this product.

The product was created to be compatible for Mac users. However, please download the preview as a test prior to purchasing!
