Sing, Play, and Create: All in 20 Minutes!
General Music Today, v28 n1 p3-7 Oct 2014
Young teachers often struggle with pacing and the ability to cover more than one or two songs and activities in a single 30-minute general music class. Included in this article are lesson activities that show it is not only possible to include many of the National Standards in a single lesson, but also possible to sing, play, and create in every lesson. In addition, these fun and exciting activities are appropriate for prekindergarten through sixth-grade music classes and can be achieved in as little as 20 minutes. With deliberate planning, these types of experiences, that include all learners, will not only excite and motivate students, but also set them on a path to transferring knowledge at higher, more complex levels.
