In this workshop day, Denise will lead teachers through activities that will help meet many of the expectations in the 2010 Music K-7 curriculum. You will sing, play instruments, create with songs, stories and poems, move, listen and respond to music, and learn songs/poems for performances at Remembrance Day or holiday assemblies. Copies of correlations for Musicplay K-6 to the new BC curriculum will be available for participants. Denise’s workshops are always fun, interactive, and packed with ideas! If you are a music specialist or if you teach music to just your own class, you’ll enjoy this workshop day!
The 4 PD Sessions will include
- Favorite Activities to Teach Musical Elements and Skills In this session you’ll learn poems and songs to use to have children respond to beat, and ways to assess beat. You’ll perform rhythm patterns and sing short melodies in singing games that children love! You’ll learn new vocal warmups and strategies to get kids singing! You’ll learn songs and games from a variety of cultures.
- Movement and Listening Fun PreK-6 In this session, we’ll use movement to identify elements of tempo, dynamics, articulation, and timbre in classroom repertoire and historical listening examples. You’ll respond to musical performances in many ways, including using ribbons, scarves, beat boards, tennis balls and cups with the music!
- Exploring and Creating with Songs, Stories and Poems In this session we’ll get creative with songs, stories and poems! Have fun creating B sections, and sound effects to accompany stories, poems, or songs.
- Remembrance Day and Holiday Assemblies In this session, you’ll read through new songs, poems to use for classroom or choir in assemblies and performances. Your assemblies will be easy to plan this year!
