Product Description
Need new ideas for your fourth grade music lessons? Want detailed ideas, questions, and strategies to try with your students? This comprehensive bundle will eventually include 28 music lessons, for the first half of the year.

All lessons will include objectives, materials, all National Core arts standards covered, skills covered, relationship to previous and future lessons, "I can" statements, comfortable starting pitch, time allotted for each activity, procedures, assessments, and transitions. A spot on each lesson will be included for an evaluation of the lesson, so you can list any notes about the lesson or about what each class covered. I'm also including essential questions and rubrics as appropriate.

This set is meant to assist you in lesson planning you fourth grade lessons. Each student population, each school, and each teacher is different, so I made these lesson plans editable (as Word files) so you could adapt as needed. Simply type into the already existing lesson, or cut and paste into your own template. These lessons are written for 35 minutes, so if you have less, you could delete activities, and if you have more, you could add using some of the suggestions in the “suggestions for addition” file (which will grow as the set grows). Please feel free to add activities of your own! This should be a living, breathing set that changes from year to year, adapting to your students, your needs, and your school’s needs.

I will also upload new songs and chants to the file as they occur throughout the lessons; they will be alphabetically listed in the songs file. Materials will also be added. Please note that while many lesson materials are included in this set, some of the materials are listed as links to products in my store, the stores of others, or on other sites online (such as West Music.)

Please note that the first lesson of this series is very similar to the fourth grade lesson in Fabulous First Day, as this is the first lesson of the fourth grade year. The present/practice 3-beat meter lesson will be similar to one you may already own, which is in Songs and Activities to Teach 3-beat meter. The four other lessons which are similar to ones you may already own are the presentation lesson for high do, which is also found in Songs and Activities to Teach High Do, the presentation lesson for Fa, which is also found in Songs and Activities to Teach Fa,, the Present Syncopa lesson in my Songs and Activities to Teach Syncopa, and the Present Tim-ka lesson in my Songs and Activities to Teach Tim-ka.

The set also includes:
*A checklist for National Core Arts Standards (this is the same design in my Music Teacher Planner {Chalkboard and Chevron}, but only includes fourth grade)
*Lesson plan template (editable Word file)
*PDF's of all of the lessons
*Editable outline of lessons in Excel:
This file is much like a simplified year plan.
*Tips for writing lessons in Word (includes info about how to check boxes on the lesson plan template)

This set could also be adapted for fifth grade, if your fifth graders are practicing these concepts. For these lessons, it is assumed that students know the following concepts: beat, rhythm, ta and ti-ti, quarter rest, tika-tika, half note, ti-tika, tika-ti, sol-mi, la, do, re, low la, low sol, 2-beat meter, 4-beat meter, do pentatonic scale, and la pentatonic scale (although lessons can be adapted if students don't know all of those concepts.) During the course of this particular set, students will learn 3-beat meter (3/4), syncopa (sometimes called ti-ta-ti or eighth/ quarter/ eighth), high do, tim-ka (sometimes called tim-ri, or dotted eighth/ sixteenth), and fa. Students will also work on several skills, such as listening, inner hearing, improvisation, and more! During the course of these lessons, students will also learn how to play recorder, including the notes B, A, G, low E, and low D. (Please note that I do not include recorder in every single lesson, nor are students playing recorder for the entire lesson; it typically takes up about 10-15 minutes of a lesson when included.)

Please note that there are some SMART notebook files included in the set, but I've included info about opening them at express.smarttech.com, if you don't have the software, and/or have included alternate directions if you can't project.
