Musicplay Grade 2 Teacher's Guide
By Denise Gagne
Teacher guide (binder) and 4 CDs
For grades 1-3 (especially grade 2).
Musicplay is a play based program - each week features a new game from which the musical concepts in the curriculum are taught. Children love music games - this is a text that will haveyour students really excited about learning music! The material supports and enhances science, social studies, and language arts curriculums, and is sequenced for use within Kodaly and Orff programs (some songs include orchestrations for Orffinstruments).
Musicplay Grade 2 features affordably priced individual student workbooks that can be purchased separately, item 805025.
Over 70 songs are given for each grade, including action songs, singalong songs, folk songs, game songs, holiday songs, and more. Multicultural songs include Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, and African songs, sung in the original languages. Native Canadian songs and games use a variety of voicings and accompaniments in the recordings. An American song supplement is included with this Canadian series. Each song lists the melody line and lyrics, with game or action directions and related CD tracks. Many list assessment uses, curriculum connections, and/ or teaching purpose.
The teacher guide also includes an extensive listing of websites for references. Music concepts taught include beat vs. rhythm, accented beats, reading and notating rhythms from flash cards and charts (uses quarter note & rest, 2 eighth notes, tied quarter notes, & half note), borduns in patterns ta rest ta rest or ta ta ta rest, development of the singing voice, identify high/ low/ and middle, reading and notating patterns (sm, slsm, smlsm, lsmd, smd), rhythm canons, speech canons, creating "effects" and accompaniments, and more.
