PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are you looking for an elementary music lesson to start off the year that has the music rules set to complementary ostinatos, allows the class to review the appropriate rhythmic concept and melodic concept, has an elemental orchestration, an easy mixer dance, is adapted for multiple grade levels, can be extended for a composition activity and then reviewed months later with different words? Enjoy this fun lesson that incorporates singing, rhythm, instruments, melody, composition and form while addressing your Orff and Kodaly curriculum.

A perfect song to teach to your elementary music students anytime - beginning of the year or months later! Choose the interactive slides that correspond to the curriculum you are currently addressing with your students regarding rhythm: quarter notes, quarter rests, 2 eighth notes beamed (ti-ti), 4 sixteenth notes beamed (tiri-tiri), 1 eighth/2 sixteenth (ti-tiri) or 2 sixteenths/1 eighth (tiri-ti). The pentatonic song utilizes Sol, Do, Re, Mi, Sol and La. You are able to choose the interactive slides that correspond to the curriculum you are addressing with your students at the time regarding melody. Adaptations and extensions are also addressed. Your students will love the activities included in the lesson plan and the PowerPoint.

The set of Lesson Plans and PowerPoint interactive slides include:

• 3 lessons each 8-12 minutes (4 pdf pages) plus an original song with Orff orchestration. The lesson plans include detailed instructions for teaching the song, rhythmic activities, melodic activities, ostinatos, mixer dance and instruments to Kindergarten - Fifth Grade. Adaptions and extensions are also addressed. The song is also adapted so you can use it later on in the year with different words.

• 37 slides created with PowerPoint 2013 - tested on PowerPoint 2010 (with 18 slides being teacher and/or student interactive) may be used to reinforce rhythmic and melodic reading. You will have everything you need to teach all the lessons, including a second PowerPoint with alternate words. (Please note, you are not charged for the second PowerPoint). An editable slide is included if you wish to add your own ostinato rule(s). Posters of the rules are also included if you wish to display them in your classroom and an editable slide is included to adapt the poster(s) if needed.

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 starting the first day of class.

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