This is the Distance Learning Version of S-Cubed Sight Singing Program for Beginners. This is the COMPLETE BUNDLE of Level ONE. This project has been created in response to Covid-19 and the resulting impacts on schools that include virtual learning. This program was originally designed to help teachers teach beginners to sight sing in the group setting in a classroom. Since late April of 2020, soon after the shutdown began, we've worked to re-create all of these lessons so our students can continue to learn to sight sing from their computers in these guided lessons. They are designed so that you can simply upload them into your virtual platform (like Google Classroom, for example) and follow the teacher who is on video teaching you. The lessons are editable so you can do what you'd like as well in order to custom fit the lessons for your students.
Assessments are included, but, during virtual learning, I plan to supplement the assessments that are included with custom designed assessments/practice examples that I created to put onto the Music Prodigy platform. In order to hold students accountable, Music Prodigy is a great option because it grades the students instantly when they do the sight singing example. The notes turn green, yellow or red based on pitch and rhythmic accuracy. You can see how long a student worked on an example as well.

This is a "test run" of some distance learning versions of S-Cubed Sight Singing Program for Beginners.
These guided video lessons are a great resource for our students who are distance learners. Distance learning with Mr. C! follows a modified version of Music In the Middle with Mr. D! S-Cubed! Sight Singing Program for Beginners. In the event that your daily routines are disrupted, students are encouraged to continue learning at their own pace from home.
Mario Contreras, who leads the Distance Learning sessions in S-Cubed, aka “Mr. C.”, has been a middle school choir director for 9 years. He has used S-Cubed! to build strong foundations with his choirs for many years and has seen and heard positive feedback from his students.
In light of world events that have led to an increase in Distance Learning, Mr. C has created student-friendly video instruction of S-Cubed! He has modified the original product to fit the needs of our distance learners.
This product fosters continued music education at home, and would benefit students who require extra learning accommodations in choir. Mr. C has also added suggestions for assessing a student's mastery within the documents he has created.
Although this is not a replacement for a hands-on learning experience in a traditional choral setting, this will help build and maintain a strong foundation in individual music literacy and choral techniques for our young musicians.
