Lessons for evaluations that will WOW your evaluator.


These lesson plans are from my Curriculum Bundle. So many people asked me to provide plans with alternate sources from the MacMillan and Silver Burdett series that I reference, that I took all of those plans and I've revised them. They now have extensive instructions, resources, posters, etc. I left the SB and McM references in for those teachers who have access to those series. But if you do not, the INDEX gives you links to finding all of the songs and activities. Because of copyright laws, I cannot include the sheet music for everything but you can easily find them on YouTube and iTunes using the links provided in the INDEX.


Please be sure to read ALL "Read First" documents. There is a Resource Key, suggested resources, classroom environment, and my philosophy of unit planning all in the first document.

NOTE: I used the same lesson plans for 5th grade that I used for 4th grade with only a few changes. My school district did not supply me with any materials or resources for 5th grade general music. Because of the wealth of materials in my 4th grade curriculum, I was never able to get to everything so it worked great. If you are looking for/needing separate plans for 5th grade, you may need to look elsewhere.
