This is the bundle of K-4 lesson plan templates I made to correlate with Arkansas standards for my unit on “Instruments and Composers.” In this group of lesson plans, I have included at least one piece/composer as a suggestion per grade, but my suggestions are easily deleted. At the bottom of the description, I have included the suggested pieces included in the lesson plans.
I made the template in Microsoft Word so you can easily plug in what you’re already doing with your own unit and have the standards mapped out for you for each unit. This will save you hours of work as it already has for my team! I organized it logically with the information you need for teaching at the beginning of the document and the information that is mostly for your administrator toward the bottom of the document.
Here are the areas I have included: Teacher name, week #/date, songs/pieces, schedule of learning activities/best practices, vocabulary/concepts, materials/resources needed, essential questions, Bloom’s levels, standards specific to that unit (already filled out for you), standards to reinforce in all units (already filled out for you), and teacher observations/reflections.
Use these lesson plans to turn into your principal. Thanks for your interest! I have several other products, including free items, so please check out my store!
Here are the suggested pieces:
Kindergarten – Peter and the Wolf Prokofiev;
1st grade - Peter and the Wolf Prokofiev and In the Hall of the Mountain King Grieg;
2nd grade – Beethoven Unit (9th Symphony - Finale, Fur Elise, 5th Symphony - mvt 1, Video suggestion: Beethoven Lives Upstairs);
3rd grade – John Williams Unit (Harry Potter music, Olympic Fanfare);
