This kit contains a lesson designed to integrate language arts with music. The goal of this lesson is to both teach children a nursery rhyme and to transform that rhyme into a speech piece.
This speech performance piece is a setting of the nursery rhyme "Girls and Boys" with an accompanying lesson plan and PowerPoint. The lesson is designed to be implemented by any classroom teacher that would like to teach an interdisciplinary lesson--no music experience or equipment is required to present this lesson. This lesson also contains an imagination game in the style of the Orff Schulwerk process and philosophy. This can be tied nicely with units on reading, poetry, rhyme or meter.
Music teachers may wish to extend this speech piece to either instruments or singing. The stomp-clap accompaniment is only a suggestion and it is recommended that you encourage your students to create a unique accompaniament. I have used this as a sol-mi piece with my beginning recorder groups and as a pentatonic improvisation piece with my xylophone groups.
This kit contains: music notation (.pdf file), lesson plan with extension notes (.pdf file), and a PowerPoint presentation (.ppt file) designed to walk your children through this activity.
