Music forms the core of the second unit of a fine arts program in Spanish for first graders. With instructional and evaluation activities built around the family, kits five through eight, each designed for two to three weeks of instruction, use songs as a basis for dramatizations, drawing, and dancing. Each kit includes music, lyrics, graphic representation of melodic contour, and chords for guitar accompaniment. For each learning activity, the focus, objective, and materials are given in English and Spanish; teacher instructions are in Spanish. When appropriate, activities support the concepts of who the child is, what his wants and needs are, what his resources are, and how he uses his resources. Activities include: (1) developing auditory experiences, playing rhythm instruments, sensing melodic contour by hand and body movements, recognizing different styles, moods, and musical dynamics, using hand levels to indicate difference in pitch; (2) continuing rhythm, melody, form, and interpretation, using hand movements to indicate direction of melody, graphic representation of pitch levels; (3) exploring qualities of human, animal, and instrumental sounds; (4) increasing auditory perception and discrimination through singing, rhythmic, and percussion experiences.
