This file now requires a THIRD-PARTY DOWNLOAD. Because this is a full school year's worth of music listening and journaling mini-lessons, the file size is large, and I will now be providing a link to download all materials from Google Drive.
These listening lessons are meant as mini-lessons, lasting approx. 10 minutes each for grades 5-8. They can also be combined for a longer listening lesson, and would be great for a sub.
The worksheets and slides are designed to have two short answer questions and one complete sentence answer (always #3.) I encourage students to spend the most time on question number three as a way of internalizing each piece. It is my hope that they will create a personal connection with the music and a lasting memory. PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE PREVIEW FOR A CLOSER LOOK.
Each month's lessons will include:
*EDITABLE PowerPoint presentation including a title page, short composer or song biography, and three questions for each piece. (Blank slides are also included)
*PDF copy of PowerPoint presentation
*Teacher's guide with answers and extensions.
*Blank student worksheets for completing listening activity.
*Interactive journal templates and directions
*SOUND FILES ARE NOT INCLUDED, however there is a link to a Safe Share video for each piece.
*A focus on one musical genre
