Wanting guidance for planning in your second grade music classroom? This comprehensive product offers helpful examples to plan your second grade music lessons, including:

*An overview of how to plan, everything from your year to your daily lesson plans

*A second grade song list, including 53 folk song/chant titles, 5 listening lesson titles, and 16 children's literature titles, cross-referenced by concept, skill, and extensions, as well as where to find these songs, chants, and mini-lessons within my TpT store

*A re concept plan (sometimes called a PPP), including descriptions of 39 physical, visual, and aural activities to prepare and practice re, as well as a process for presenting re

*A comprehensive second grade year plan, including information for rhythm, melody, reading/writing, vocal exploration, partwork, form, listening, inner hearing, improvisation, instruments, movement, assessment, children's literature, and holidays. The year plan includes a multitude of activities for the entire second grade year, and can be an invaluable tool for planning your daily music lessons. The set includes the year plan in both PDF and Excel, as well as an Excel spreadsheet with comments, which provides more information about each activity.

*A 2-month planning template, with an example (this can be very useful to use before a program--to figure out how much you can fit in before a performance--and before grade cards are due, to figure out how many assessments you can do before the marking period is done)

*A sample 2nd grade lesson plan, for preparing do, practicing 2-beat meter, and beginning to prepare tika-tika--both PDF and Word are provided

*Songs, chants, and materials you will need for the sample 2nd grade lesson, including "Sorida," "Pease Porridge Hot," "Diddle Diddle Dumpling," and "We are dancing," as well as an ostinato visual for "Pease Porridge Hot," and a "Where in the World" visual for finding Zimbabwe (for "Sorida")

*Lesson plan templates for second grade, one with NCCAS standards, and one with indicators for the state of Ohio (if you do not live in Ohio, simply click in each row and change the indicators)

*Tips for writing lessons in Word

You can also adapt this for older grades, if you teach concepts in a different order or you have not had students since Kindergarten. I have included all plans as editable documents so you can adapt as you need!

For the editable documents, you can download the fonts for free here, or you can change the font to whatever you'd like.

I hope these documents are as helpful to you as they have been to me!
