Important Notes About This Product:
✓A projector is required to use the PowerPoint presentations.
✓A Smart Board is not required but is helpful when utilizing portions of this resource. If you do not have a Smart Board in your classroom, simply allow students to click the mouse at your computer to hear sounds and other interactive features throughout the resource (there are a small number of pages that include clickable objects).
✓ Lessons (and the resources) introduce students to 5 common classroom instruments. These instruments include: rhythm sticks, maracas, guiros, sand blocks, and hand drums. If you do not have these instruments in your classroom, consider introducing a different classroom instrument in place of the ones mentioned throughout the lessons. Two of the lessons also require that you have access to at least two or three xylophones. If you do not have access to xylophones, you will have to omit portions of these two lessons.
✓ Other materials needed to implement these lessons include: A piano, 3 buckets or trash cans, 3 bean bags or balls, 2 brown paper bags, and bubbles (enough for every student in the class).
