Spelling Blocks - For Any Word List
Yup! I know I am a music teacher. But I was working with a second grade student who needed more ways to practice his spelling. So, I created this lesson. Since then, I have had teachers in other classrooms tell me how much they appreciated using this lesson. Or, maybe, like our family, you want to use it at home.
A first grade teacher had this to say. “I was searching for a good, feasible, and effective way to build words with my students! This is it! We use this often to practice our spelling words on our chromebooks in google classroom with my 1st graders. They have learned to use it really well and it is fun. I love that I have a record of what they did (unlike when we use whiteboards) so now I know who needs intervention.”
These drag & drop spelling blocks are available as PowerPoint or Google Slides versions. Please share this one with your classroom teachers.
Camp Songs with Differentiated Orff Arrangements
These camp songs are SO FUN! And the differentiated Orff arrangements have something for each grade level. You can have fun and be silly and still deliver lessons that build music literacy!
I have just started another series of camp songs that includes simple harmonic singing as well as Orff accompaniment. This 3-part partner song is designed for success. All songs start and end on Do. This will become one of your favorites – GUARANTEED! Click to listen to arrangement in video preview.
