Guiding the Musical Growth of Children, Fifth and Sixth Grades. A Curriculum Guide.
Smith, Hazel A.; And Others
This guide is designed to serve as a point of departure for classroom teachers and music teacher specialists as they plan for the musical growth of 5th and 6th graders. The guide is also intended to be a source for materials. Topics covered in the document include harmony; songs for special days and season; rhythmic movement; listening to music; playing instruments; reading music; and developing concepts for melody, rhythm, harmony, form, and expressive quality. It is not suggested that the activities or all suggestions for any one resource be completed in one day. The songs and recordings listed can be used throughout the year, emphasizing one facet of the musical content at one time and dealing with other facets at other times. The materials and suggestions do not have grade level labels because good practice and good musical selections are not restricted to specific grade levels. Suggested resources have been developed for each activity so that the teacher may choose material which best suits his class situation. (Author/JR)
