Product Description:

This program is cumulative in nature. For best results, start with Lesson 1-The Game!

Link to Lesson 1 of S-Cubed! Forbidden Pattern

By Lesson 16 of S-Cubed!, we are approaching the half-way point on our Sight Singing journey with our Middle School Children! The students have mastered stepwise sight singing examples with some difficult rhythms. They have the tools in their toolbox to deal with many challenges, and they can figure out many things on their own.….and all of it is done acapella…with success!

We have been preparing skips for weeks. Now, it is time for us to help our beginning students learn to see, interpret and successfully sign and sing skips on the actual staff.

In this 4 day Power Point lesson, you will get 3 Sight Singing examples, 2 Rhythm exercises, guidance on the game Forbidden Pattern using Chromatics, three written/oral warm up exercises, handouts to supplement the learning of skips vs. steps, and, as always, you will get links to video teaching tips from Mr D for each daily lesson. Also included, as always, are the video teaching clips of Mr D actually teaching Days 1-3 of the lesson to his beginning students. You will get information about his own test results with his beginners so you can see how he is doing as he takes this journey with you while teaching his own beginners how to Sight Sing.

S-Cubed! is like a 7 month long Sight Singing workshop for choral music teachers that includes lesson plans, teaching tips, teaching examples, rhythm exercises, games and, of course, PDF, reproducible files of everything including Sight Singing examples. It’s all about success and fun instead of dread, silence and moans. Developed by a real middle school teacher who is using the method successfully in his own classroom, S-Cubed! is not a Sight Singing book. There are tons of those on the market. It’s an all-inclusive 10/15 minutes-per-day system. It is tried and true and doesn’t skip any steps in the teaching process. The method meets the students where they are and gives them only the information they need to be successful and to stay excited about learning to sight sing. And at the end of the course, you have fluent, excited, literate sight singers who are reading difficult two part examples with success and ease!

This game is the hook for your young singers. They love playing this game because they want to beat the teacher!
