Blues Artist Instagram Project

2020-04-15T19:09:43+00:00

Designed for the elementary/secondary general music classroom, this lesson plan incorporates information about blues musicians in a social media format. This is a barebones idea that the teacher would modify in order to maximize usefulness in the classroom. Likewise, the first slide encourages users to expand or modify the project as they see fit. This is a fun way for students to research and present historical information about musicians! Author: Danielle Larrick

Music/ELA lesson plans for at home learning

K-8 Music/ELA Lesson Plans for Home Learning

2020-04-13T17:29:11+00:00

This is a very detailed lesson plan for use in any general music classroom, containing materials and possible adaptations for different grade levels. This may be somewhat challenging or uncomfortable for students who aren’t used to talking about themselves in writing, but it is a great way to bridge music and ELA. This lesson only covers one day of activities, but it could be expanded by providing more listening examples, exploring an entire genre of music, or comparing different genres.

take home packet

Elementary Music Take Home Packet

2020-04-13T17:28:11+00:00

This take-home packet is ideally suited for lower elementary general music classes. Rather than all activities (four total) fitting into one unit, it gives a wide variety, focusing on giving students the chance to interact with music. Students will compose melodically and rhythmically, sing, and practice basic mallet technique. An interesting highlight is that the composition exercises ask the student to use items around the house as their note heads or to represent rhythms. Author: Music with Mrs. Dunc
