Need new ideas for your Kindergarten music lessons? Want detailed ideas, questions, and strategies to try with your students? This comprehensive bundle includes 40 Kindergarten music lesson plans for the entire year. Save 20% by buying as a bundle instead of buying the individual sets! The lessons prepare, present, and practice the following concepts:
The lesson plans also address different types of voices (speaking, singing, squeaky, etc.), and have students moving, singing, and more!
All lesson plans are tried-and-true lessons, and 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 is 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 your Kindergarten 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 25 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. 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.
The visuals and activities included in the lessons are included with this set, but some materials--such as recordings and puppets--will have to be purchased separately. I did leave suggestions for some of the activities in case you don't have the suggested materials.
The set also includes:
*A checklist for National Core Arts Standards (this is the same design in my Music Teacher Planner, but only includes Kindergarten)
*Lesson plan template (editable Word file)
*PDF's of all of the lessons
*Overview of lessons: This file is in Excel form, and is much like a 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 first grade, if your first graders are practicing these concepts.
