Included in this product:


~4 Fall-themed lesson plans and 2 Halloween-themed lesson plans

(Note: Each lesson is designed to last approximately 40 minutes. Lessons include the following sections: Objective, Warm-Up, Anticipatory Set, Model, Guided Practice, and Independent Practice. Lessons include various combinations of song, game, and activity ideas. ALL OF THE RESOURCES NEEDED TO IMPLEMENT THESE LESSONS ARE INCLUDED IN THIS PODUCT. THIS INCLUDES WORKSHEETS, POWERPOINT PRESENTATIONS, AND WARM-UPS. You will need a few basic materials for some of the games mentioned in the lessons including paperclips, pencils, paper, and tape. For the bucket drumming activity, you can use drums or chairs if you do not have access to buckets. Sound files are not included for any of the songs. The two original songs are sung to the tunes “Miss Mary Mack” and “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.” One of the original songs includes notation for the melody only. The other does not include notation.)

This set was designed to be appropriate for second or third grade music students. If using it with second grade, you may need to spend more time on certain concepts (such as the proper use of instruments, performing rhythms, and identifying melodies)

Lessons enforce the following musical concepts:

Identify the names of the lines and spaces on the staff

Listen and identify which melody you heard

Identify melodies that go up, down, or stay the same

Identify musical terms such as piano, forte, crescendo, decrescendo, presto, and large

Perform a song using the previous musical terms

Perform rhythms containing quarter notes/rests, eighth notes, and half notes

Perform notated melodies on classroom Orff instruments

Sing with accurate pitch

Demonstrate appropriate audience etiquette

This product also includes the following resources which are mentioned throughout the lessons:

2 original Fall bucket drumming pieces

2 original songs, sung to a familiar tune (with lyric sheets and notation for the melody of one of the songs)

Fall vocal explorations

Fall “bean bag toss” PowerPoint game

Fall staff flashcards

Pumpkin melody cards (to be used in a circle game)

Halloween tongue twisters

Halloween “clip it” cards

Halloween spin it worksheets to review lines and spaces

*Additional game and lessons ideas are included in the lessons!*
