I made this sing-along to align with my 4th graders' learning about Colorado history. We had a western swing band come and perform for the elementary school and I was amazed to discover that my students loved this style of music and I really wanted to make an effort to incorporate regional music into my curriculum. This is an easy PowerPoint to print out for students as well.
This is a sing-along presentation that has what I call "DIY Time" where my students play along while they sing on different instruments and learn a new musical concept. I teach my students accents with this song.
Being a non-Colorado native, I was a bit intimidated at attempting regional music, but as I have been told from living in many different places, "once you hit 7 years, you are basically from here", so it is about time I put something like this together.
I am constantly working to improve my lessons and teaching aids for myself and for you. Please let me know if you have any problems with the formatting and please rate and review.
