Musicplay Grade 5 Teacher's Guide & Listening Kit
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.
Recordings are included in the teacher's guides! (No downloads from itunes are required)
* 4 Performance/Accompaniment CDs of songs and multicultural listening examples are included!
The Musicplay 5 CDs have 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 on the CDs have both performance tracks and accompaniment tracks - you can use the accompaniments only for your performances. Multicultural songs feature authentic performances - the songs are in original languages and are sung by native singers. Many of the multicultural songs are game songs that appeal to children even though the language and sound may be unfamiliar. Many rounds are included so your students can begin singing in parts. There are wonderful choral selections and folk song arrangements in Musicplay 5 in unison as well two parts.
All of the recordings are available to download for the teachers who do not have a disk drive. With disk drives being phased out of use, many of our teachers can no longer access the music tracks that are included with the Teacher's Guides! To keep up with technology, we are introducing a new system based on codes.
When you purchase and receive a Musicplay Teacher's Guide you will find a unique code tucked inside. This code will allow you to unlock the MP3s and have them digitally delivered to your computer. Please click here for more detailed instructions. (You will still receive the CDs with your teacher's guide.)
Assessment suggestions are given throughout the teacher's guides.
Checklists of important skills are included if your district requires the use of them.
