PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teach 5th thru 8th graders to play harmonica the fun and easy way!

I teach music in an elementary school and this is the resource I created to teach all my 5th graders to play harmonica. I use it every year and they love it!!! It is fun and easy, easy, easy!

Kids often receive a harmonica as a toy, but rarely are taught how to actually play it. This resource can be used for any age group. The kids will have a great time learning! If you, the teacher, don’t know how to play, don’t worry. You can take a little time and teach yourself using the same method before you teach the kids.

If you have never used harmonica in the classroom I highly recommend it! It's a great way to introduce chords to kids and let them experience how chords work with a song. Your kids will be able to play the first day and will be very excited!

This teaching kit has 9 songs with 9 levels for the students to pass.
These are the songs
Level 1 • Mary Had a Little Lamb
Level 2 • Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
Level 3 • London Bridge
Level 4 • Are You Sleeping?
Level 5 • Itsy Bitsy Spider
Level 6 • When the Saints Go Marching In
Level 7 • Clementine
Level 8 • Oh Susanna
Level 9 • Polly Wolly Doodle

Along with how to play the harmonica my teaching kit also discusses ideas for how to purchase and pay for harmonicas for the kids, plus reward suggestions, etc.

This is a zipped folder with several files included in the teaching kit:
♦ Harmonica Unit Teachers Guide– explains how to use the harmonica unit with your kids
♦ Harmonica-Songs1 – are song charts for the kids with words and hole numbers
♦ Harmonica-Songs2 – are songs with staff, notes, words and numbers
♦ Harmonica Stars cards - for each kid to keep track of their progress.
