    "Music Around the World Video: neat way for students to hear music from different countries while broadening their cultural perspectives. It would be really neat if you could bring various instruments into the classroom and let students see and play them, talk about the role of music in culture. You can also tie this to Geography by having the students trace the path of the video on a globe or map while watching." YUSH!

An original piano composition in the style of Bach through Gershwin. Great way to hear the stylistic differences between the eras and composers. Kids will enjoy the "hairstyles" as well!

Music most certainly has a cross-curricular perspective. Music really is everywhere!

    Audrey Murphy Do you have a way to share this with Ms. Mann? Made me think of her since she's awesome at incorporating a variety of subjects. :)

    Yes! I will text her a pic :) Heather Eison

Listening to Beethoven I almost forgot that I had scanned these to share with you!  A few weeks ago we listened to Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven.  First graders discussed tempo, mood and dynamics and then created these written/drawn responses.

So many things you can teach with this: high and low pitches, legato/non-legato, short and long rhythms, harmony, etc.! Love it.

    This would be awesome if I didn't have a kid with epilepsy!

Picture books about music and instruments for kids. I've only read four of them, but it looks like a good list to check out.

Music theory worksheets. If I ever want to teach again.

Mrs. King's Music Room: Hear it! Clap it! Write it!-2nd Grade ( Rhythmic dictation ... why wait until they are older ? ) Great idea!

    i have been trying to teach music dictation, but most 2nd graders finding it difficult. This big graph idea will be so helpful: a block for each beat. Also love the plastic page protector idea to save on paper and easily erase mistakes!

  • Cyndi Johnson

    You can also laminate rather than spend $ on page protectors! ;)

  • Linda Sue Hundley

    This is an awesome way for kiddos to practice rhythmic AND melodic dictation! I've used this method for the last 25 years!
