Do your students LOVE instruments? Mine sure do! To engage students, while also teaching steady beat and rhythm, I've put together a few of my favorite instrument and literature lessons!
These lessons are a great way to pair reading and instruments to elementary students of all levels! Two lessons are included for general classroom instruments such as rhythm sticks, tambourines, maracas, etc. Three lessons are included for drumming, using bongos, congas, etc.
Each lesson provides you with the framework and grade level to be successful and provide an interactive learning experience. However, each lesson can be adjusted for your specific classroom and is able to be expanded upon.

An assessment worksheet is also included, with three different versions to fit your classroom needs.
Feedback is very important to me - please rate & review. Thanks!
