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

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

*My completed monthly plans that I used in January 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!

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

*Materials for January: 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 January, and some will be exclusive to this set. Materials/games include:

--Kindergarten: Mr. Stingy Man (one of my favorite musical stories, could be used any time during the year!)

--1st grade: Snowball koosh ball PDF and reading assessment for ta and ti-ti

--2nd grade: Mitten melodies koosh ball PDF for do (includes staff and stick notation)

--3rd grade: "Let's go to the movies" game for low la (has students identifying melodic patterns by listening, then transferring stick notation to the staff. Could be used at any time in the year!) The game comes in both PowerPoint and Google Slides, so it can be used with distance learning.

--4th grade: "Shoheen Sho" slideshow to practice re and BAG on recorder (could be used any time during the year!)

--5th grade: Low sol winter-themed flashcards

--1st-5th grade: New Year's Day rhythm flashcards (includes 8 flashcards for each rhythmic concept: ta and ti-ti, rest, tika-tika, half note, ti-tika, tika-ti, syncopa, tim-ka, tam-ti)

--Bonus freebie from Amy Abbott: Puppet patterns for ta and ti-ti and 2-beat meter!

*Directions/ Suggestions for use

Download the preview for more information. Please note that you can use the materials in different grade levels, depending on where your students are in their curriculum. (For example, low sol is usually taught in third or fourth grade, but since my 5th graders didn't have me every single year, they are a bit behind. Use the materials as you see fit!)
