March and April Lesson Plans

I'm starting to get spring fever and notice my plans have not been the most consistent!!!! After TCAP I will finish the year STRONG! :)

March Wk 1
5th grade
We began composing the recorder activity assignment (#5)
I grouped students in groups of about 4 kids. They each worked a measure or two of composing and writing their notes for the song. When they were complete I played each composition for the class. During the follow up class they got into their groups again and played through their song measure by measure. If a student felt comfortable, I let them play the song in it's entirety with no breaks in the steady beat.

Students completed Activity #3 and Activity #4 in their Cool Tunes Packet
