Need a jump start to your April planning for your music room? This helpful product offers the following:

*April monthly planning template: Can be used for each grade level, to plan out the month

*My completed monthly plans I used for April 2016, for grades K-5: These will include song choices, picture books, dances, and more! Several links to resources, picture books, songs, and blog posts are included. This is intended to give you inspiration for your own plans! Note: Due to snow days and delays, there are a few songs on my April plans listed as new songs which I was supposed to teach in March.

*Lesson Plan Weekly Planning, updated for April 2017: This document helps you plan which lesson each class/ grade level is on for each week of April.

*Materials for April: One file from each grade level has been selected to be included in this set. These materials include games and activities not currently in my store. Some will be posted after April, and some will be exclusive to this set. Materials/games include:

--Kindergarten: Bee Bee rhythm tracking sheet

--1st grade: "Let's go to the movies" game for sol-mi (game in Google Slides, can be used with distance learning, whole group, and/or in centers)

--2nd grade: Paper plate improvisation activity for tika-tika (could be adapted for other rhythms)

--3rd grade: Spring patterns PDF and reading assessment: Students can throw a squishy ball at the smart board and read the pattern, or choose a flower and read the pattern.
