Musicplay Grade 5 Teacher's Guide
Musicplay is an award-winning music curriculum for elementary schools. Musicplay is a sequential curriculum with lessons that follow the calendar year. The weekly lesson outlines the new concepts that will be taught, those that will be reviewed, and include seasonal and holiday repertoire. The planning is done for the teacher!
Year Plans are included for each grade.
Monthly Lesson Outlines give you the month at a glance.
40 weekly detailed lessons offer you a menu of musical activities. There is more than enough material in the lesson plan for two thirty-minute music classes. The lesson plans are like a menu. There are many song choices and for each song, there are activities to choose from. You choose the songs and the activities that teach the curriculum concepts required by your state or province. (Musicplay is aligned to all state and provincial curriculums!) You choose the songs and activities that hold the most appeal for you and your students.
Feel free to substitute freely - Musicplay provides the framework - you get to make the choices.
Recordings are included in the teacher's guides! (Download Audio MP3's)
Musicplay 5 has more than 100 musical selections! Child and adult voices are used, and there are many recordings licensed from popular children’s entertainers. Accompaniments include Orff arrangements, piano accompaniments, and orchestrated accompaniments. Performance songs have both performance tracks and accompaniment tracks - you can use the accompaniments only for your performances.
