GAMEPLAN Complete Curriculum
By Jeff Kriske and Randy DeLelles
Complete K-5 set of curriculum manuals, charts and visuals, digital supplements, and gameboard.


GAMEPLAN Curriculum

An active music curriculum for children, organized chronologically (Sept-May) with 4 lessons per month, each with approximately 60 minutes of activities.  The curriculum embraces several music philosopies, including the principles of Orff Schulwerk and the Kodály approach to reading rhythm and melody. Each grade level includes experiences in imitation, exploration, improvisation, and visualization; repertoire rich in folk literature, nursery rhymes and traditional singing games; a yearly plan categorizing objectives in 5 conceptual areas (rhythm, melody, harmony, form, timbre); written assessments. Many song arrangements use barred Orff instruments, percussion, and/or recorders. Each grade has correlating picture books (picture books are not included with this set).


GAMEPLAN Charts & Visuals & Digital Supplements

Labeled and organized for storage, the over 200 pieces in each optional package support the GAMEPLAN curriculum. Each includes 18 spiral-bound charts, sets of flash cards, shape cards for form, rhythm cards, visuals, and manipulatives to accompany lessons. Each package also includes Digital Supplements (DS) created with the SMART Notebook software and accredited with SMART's Premium Content Status. The DS contain all of the Charts and about 50% of the Visuals. The Visuals used as flash cards or in small group work are NOT included in the DS. In addition to the SMART files, all charts are also included in PowerPoint format, but those images may not be manipulated.


GAMEBOARD & Digital Supplement

Set of 8 bulletin board components. Designed as companion pieces to GAMEPLAN, each full color display engages students in active music making. The 132 pieces include a xylophone visual with movable letters, recorder fingering charts, hand signal cards, solfege ladder with movable pieces, barred instrument signs, body percussion staff with movable pieces, music symbol cards and unpitched percussion cards. Also included is a Digital Supplement (DS) created with SMART Notebook software and accredited with SMART's Premium Content Status. The DS contains 7 of the 8 components – all but the barred instrument signs.

I am wondering if it is possible to buy only the Game Plan book for Kindergarten? This question may have been answered somewhere else on the site, but I haven't seen it yet.

How do you find the music on itunes to download for the music curriculum that is in the books?
D V on Aug 24, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I would first search youtube for the listed song. Youtube has almost everything and then you don't have to purchase all the music. Otherwise, on itunes just go to the "iTunes store" and search for the song. If you want the exact CD, google search the code listed and you should find the exact CD. From there you can go back to iTunes and see if they have that CD.

Hope that helps,
How necessary or how much do you use the visuals? I am trying to decide on order teacher manuals only K-5, or if the visual package/full set is truly worth it.
Candice A on Feb 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The curriculum will reference the charts and visuals daily. They aren't required to teach it, but they do make it easier to convey the ideas the curriculum uses.

Do you have or can you recommend a follow up curriculum or series for 6-8th grades that aligns with the K-5 program?
Tracy M on May 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: not really. World Music Drumming, frame drumming books, jazz (Now's the Time and All Bles), ukulele or guitar instruction books are good for middle school, marimba (Walt hampton books and Ensemble, Wood Songs), body percussion books like Rhythmische ubung & Body Rondo) are some ideas.
Does this include the picture books?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This set does not include the picture books.
Could a classroom teacher or long-term substitute (non music) get by teaching K-2 music with this?
A shopper on Aug 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would say maybe. I got this curriculum thinking that someone could step in my place and teach using it, even though they didn't have a music degree. It was harder for them than I expected. I am back to teaching and using the curriculum myself, and it is detailed and takes time. That might have been the issue with the "subs" I had come in, but it wasn't easy for them.
Does this curriculum include music composition for K-5? I am a firm believer that children should compose, and would like to make sure this covers composition and includes compositional activities prior to purchasing. If so, for what grades are composition activities covered?
