The set of Lesson Plans and PowerPoint interactive slides include:
• 6 lessons each 4-8 minutes (6 pdf pages) plus an original speech poem incorporating eighth notes and one incorporating half notes. The lesson plans include detailed instructions for teaching the poem and rhythmic activities with first, second or third grade. The lesson is also appropriate for Kindergarten with adaptations. Adaptions and extensions are addressed.
• 42 slides created with PowerPoint 2010 (with 14 slides being teacher and/or student interactive) may be used to reinforce rhythmic reading and aurally identifying rhythmic patterns. You will have everything you need to teach all the lessons. PowerPoints work very well with Smartboards - just touch the board to activate the sound effects and the animations.
It is a perfect piece to address Orff, Kodaly or Dalcroze curricular concepts while enjoying making music especially during the month of March!
The product was created to be compatible for Mac users. However, download the preview prior to purchasing to ensure that the animations and sound effects work for your platform.
