Valentine’s Day and LOVE

The Super Bowl

Here’s a Google Slides Super Bowl lesson!

In the News

“In the News” segments are the perfect way to start or end a class with a brief explanation (usually involving music) of a special day and then video examples. They vary in length from 4-7 minutes. For February:

Feb. 7-World Ballet Day with Misty Copeland
Feb. 15-National Gumdrop Day
Feb. 26-National Tell a Fairytale Day

Ukulele

Four pages of songs that kids LOVE! Songs include classic and current popular genres.

The curriculum is sequenced from 1-chord songs and slowly progresses to more and more chords.

All pages are located in the dropdown menu at the top of every page!

Practice instrument identification and rhythms.

Challenge your older kids with this tapping rhythm game.

Awesome Additions for Any Time of the Year

These awesome additions include quality music activities that aren’t seasonal but have a great engagement factor for many kids.

  • Monkeys Spinning Monkeys (TikTok hit)
  • Cephalopod Game (aka Squid Game and a decision each teacher has to decide if choosing this one.)
  • The Odd Song– a GREAT elemental-style xylophone piece where almost everyone can be instantly successful. I’ve used it with 2nd grade-6th grade.
