PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

We all know the song “Valentine, Red and Blue” can be used to teach or reinforce Do Re Mi and Sol along with half notes. However, let’s extend the song and the activities to make it truly musical and memorable. The traditional song has been extended to include a B section. Your students will love the engaging activities included in the lesson plans and the PowerPoint visuals. A perfect addition to your Orff and Kodaly resources especially around Valentines Day or in the month of February.

There are 2 PowerPoints included in the product to make it easy to spiral the curriculum: one working with eighth notes and one working with half notes. Please note there are several slides that are repeated in each PowerPoint and you are not charged for the duplicated slides.

The set of Lesson Plans and PowerPoint interactive slides include:

• 4 lessons each 8-12 minutes (4 pdf pages) plus an original Orff arrangement for 2nd - 4th grade. An adapted Orff arrangement has been included to use with 1st - 2nd grade depending on your students abilities and needs. The lesson plans include detailed instructions for teaching the song, mixer dance, rhythmic and melodic activities, plus the Orff ensemble to first - fourth grade. Additional adaptions and extensions are also addressed.

• 40 slides created with PowerPoint 2013 and tested on PowerPoint 2010 (with 23 slides being student interactive) may be used to reinforce reading rhythmic and melodic patterns, notating the song on the staff and aurally identifying melodic patterns and rhythmic patterns. You will have everything you need to teach all the lessons.

It is a perfect piece to add to a performance/concert or just to sing and dance in music class addressing curricular concepts as appropriate. You do not need to utilize the Orff arrangement in order to address curricular concepts while your class enjoys making music with this product.

The product was created to be compatible for Mac users. However, please download the preview as a test prior to purchasing!
