This bundle is a great way to introduce the percussion family to younger elementary students and the sounds that they make! Students will read The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything (will need to be purchased separately by teacher) and make connections between the action sounds in the story and percussion instruments within the music classroom! Students will incorporate percussion instruments into the story to add various sound elements to the items the little old lady finds on her walk!
Shoes= rhythm sticks= Clomp, clomp!
This lesson is a fantastic way to incorporate Language Arts into your music classroom, as well as encouraging students to make predictions and use critical thinking skills when pairing words with sounds!
This PPT has clear examples of all of the items the little old lady finds in the story and pairs appropriate classroom instruments students can play. The PPT is also available as a PDF to print for students to use!
Included in the bundle are THREE assessment or extension worksheets that are on three various skill levels that include matching the action words to rhythms and matching the items found on the walk to the appropriate instrument to check for understanding of the percussion family.
