Description of Lessons
4th and 5th Grade - Students will go through normal first day procedures (rules, etc.) and then will learn a wonderful cup routine to the song "Turn the Beat Around." I use the version found in Making Music, Grade 4. The directions are editable if you choose to use a different version.

These lessons are meant to hook my students from the first day. I use the lessons to review things like singing voice, form, tempo, etc. I find that if I can give my class a reputation of "fun" then the students will buy into any lesson I give them in the future! These lessons are designed for my 45 minutes classes but you could modify them for 30 min or hour classes as needed.

This is meant to be a guide for your individual situation. Substitutions for any part of the lesson is acceptable. Additional items you need to teach the lesson directly as written that are NOT included.
• "Turn the Beat Around" from the series Making Music, 4th Grade. Alternatively you can use a version from iTunes (the plans are Editable for your needs)
• Class set of cups (plastic or disposable from the grocery store work).
• Rhythm Sticks (optional)


Thank you to Alfred Publishing for their written permission to use the resource, "Turn the Beat Around" in this publication.
