Get to the Point! A Collection of Pointing Pages and Powerful Plans
By Artie Grace Almeida and Katie Grace Miller
Book and CD of printable resources
88 pages
Grades K - 3

Playing meets pedagogy in this collection of productive lesson plans, precision-crafted by Artie Almeida and up-and-coming educator Katie Grace Miller. Using the manipulatives that are at the core of this resource, your students will point their way to an understanding of many music concepts. Each of these fifteen lessons outlines multiple step-by-step ideas for how the students can interact with the pointing pages. You can pick and choose a single activity or, for the full experience, present the entire plan to your students.

Pointing pages are visual music-fluency tools that offer every student the opportunity to interact with various aspects of a piece of music: the steady beat, rhythm, melodic contour, phrase, form, etc. They highlight a specific musical building-block or concept and can be used for presentation or practice of a concept and also for assessment. Above all, they engage the students and help with tracking.

All of the pointing pages are available as full-color digital files, which you may project or print to create bright, engaging visual aids. Getting to the point of your lesson has never been easier!
