PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These elementary music lesson plans include lesson plans for elementary music, grades K-5th for months August through December. Music lessons include a brief description of the activities and songs each grade will participate in during one 40 minute class period (Please note that I teach at a school with severe behaviors. The time frame may be closer to 30 or 35 minutes for schools with less severe behaviors). Because my school is on an A, B, C rotation, each music lesson is used three days in a row before moving on to the next music lesson. The top of each music lesson gives the months and exact dates the music lessons will be used. (NOTE: To avoid copyright violations, you will receive a PDF version of this product. The document is not editable.)

(PLEASE NOTE: PURCHASE OF THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT GRANT YOU PERMISSION TO UPLOAD THE RESOURCE ON ANY OTHER WEBSITE OR INTERNET LOCATION OR TO SHARE THE PRODUCT WITH OTHER TEACHERS (UNLESS YOU PURCHASED ADDITIONAL LICENSES). To avoid copyright violations, you will receive a PDF version of this product. The document is not editable.)

Throughout the lessons, you will notice blue text. For example, in the preview file, the first Kindergarten lesson has blue text that reads: "K Resources Page 20-21." This means that if you purchase the Music Resources that go with these lesson plans, you will have the poster mentioned in that lesson. Please note that the resources are only sold for the whole year or per grade level. They are not available for the first half of the year only.

These music lesson plans are meant to serve as a general road map for your elementary music lesson planning. They give guidelines for when to teach each grade certain musical concepts along with game and activity ideas. You can use these music lesson plans in conjunction with your own music lessons or stand alone. Please note that 4th grade is not included in these lessons (other than reference to very basic concepts students are working on). This is due to the fact that I use a book called "Recorder Karate" by Barb Philipak for the majority of the year with 4th grade. Some of the 3rd grade lessons refer to a book called "Mallet Madness" by Artie Almeida. If you do not own this book, you will still have approximately 25 original 3rd grade lesson plans (that do not require the book) to work with. Also, I spend time teaching my 5th graders how to play the guitar. If you do not teach guitar at your school, and you purchase this product, you will have 30 original 5th grade lesson plans that are not related to the guitar. Each grade level has the same lesson plan for the first two weeks of the school year. I formatted them this way in order to make transitioning back into the school-year easier on myself and to make sure each grade reviews the Star Spangled Banner every year. You are more than welcome to add in your own lessons during the first two weeks in order to add more variety. If you have any questions, please let me know by emailing me at emilyconroy4@gmail.com

Most songs listed in the music lessons are from the Share the Music textbook series, Music K-8, or pop culture. If you don't have access to any of these resources, many of the songs are accessible through Amazon, iTunes, and YouTube.

Included in this product:

Kindergarten Lesson Plans (1st half)
First Grade Lesson Plans (1st half)
Second Grade Lesson Plans (1st half)
Third Grade Lesson Plans (1st half)
Fifth Grade Lesson Plans (1st half)

Each grade contains roughly 24 lessons (3rd grade contains about 14 lessons). The number of lessons per month vary depending on days in the month, holidays, parent-teacher conferences, etc. However, months average between 6 and 8 lessons per month.
