This is a unit I wrote this summer while working with
special education students. The students had tremendous
success with the worksheets to understand basic concepts
of music and to instill pride in their own ability to
express their own musical ideas.
This package includes, lesson plans for lower elementary
and upper elementary (lower elementary plans can be
used with upper elementary grades as needed depending
on the needs of the students), worksheets for each
musical element (1 for lower elementary, 1 for upper
elementary), and a motivational sign and achievement
tracker based on a pop culture theme that is familiar to
many students. The teacher can choose what medium
they want to use to fill in the achievement tracker (I used
Do-a-Dot markers and students really liked it).
