Frequently asked questions (FAQ's)

Question: Does this set require lots of prep?

Answer: I created this set so that it would require little prep. The lessons can be used as is, or can be edited. The accompanying materials can simply be printed or opened up. You will need to gather materials for each sub plan (such as pencils, non-pitched percussion, etc.), or let the sub know where those materials are. There are a few picture books and recordings that you would need to purchase to use the lessons.

Question: Does this set require technology?

Answer: Many of the materials in this set can be used without technology. There are a few visuals that can be used with simply a LCD projector and/or interactive white board.

Question: Which programs do I need to open up the files?

Answer: The set comes in a zipped folder, which you will need to unzip. The file types include:

  • PDF
  • mp3
