Introduction

In this lesson, you will:

  • warm up with rhythms – includes eighth notes, quarters, 16ths
  • warm up voices with Poison Melody
  • How To….   What If?
  • Music Rules – create body percussion
  • Name Game – This or That
  • Learn to sing and move to the song “Clap Your Hands” by Kungs
  • complete a SING-O game card so your teacher can get to know you.

Starting dates for school districts can vary from the end of July to after Labor Day!  The Musicplay song sequence will begin in September week 1.  This August Back to School Lesson Module 1 (and all the August modules) are given for teachers who start earlier.  Start in whatever week your school district begins.  While some activities may repeat in the August lessons, extensions will be given in weeks 2-3-4 so that there is new concepts and learning for schools that start very early.
