Elementary Music Lesson Plan for teaching 2nd graders how to read lyrics. Reading the lyrics set to music notation is very different from reading a story in a book. Take advantage of their desire to show off their text reading abilities by showing them how to follow the words, verses, and the refrain in a song. Includes teaching Powerpoint.
IMPORTANT INTERDISCIPLINARY CONNECTIONS
Be sure the classroom teachers know that you are making connections with what students are learning by reinforcing reading skills—hyphens, syllables, letter and word recognition.
