These interdisciplinary lessons, based on the picture book by Lloyd Moss and Marjorie Priceman, introduce young students to instruments, performance vocabulary, and numbers and graphs. It is suitable for the general classroom, or the music classroom.

The lessons can be taught by a general classroom teacher, a NON-MUSIC SUB, or a music specialist. Extensions are included for both the classroom teacher and the music specialist. The core lesson can be done in one class, or mix and match additional lesson ideas to build a mini unit around music and math.

A number of kid-friendly videos are included, along with several printable worksheets.

Home-based learning

Send these sheets home for remote learning too! Students can access the videos from home, and complete the sheets in print, or on a learning platform like Seesaw!
