GAMEPLAN Curriculum Grade Five an Active Music Curriculum for Children, by Jeff Kriske and Randy DeLelles, is the sixth volume in the GAMEPLAN curriculum. Each grade level in the GAMEPLAN series includes 35 weeks of lesson plans for the elementary music specialist. The curriculum is organized chronologically through the school year from September to May with 4 lessons per month each with approximately 60 minutes of activities. GAMEPLAN organizes musical objectives in a logical progression that is educationally sound and developmentally appropriate. Lessons are presented in a concise format that is practical, easy to follow and user-friendly.
The Grade Five curriculum book includes over 135 activities that help children learn about music in an active way. Also included is Hot Tunes.
Hot Tunes is a separate 22-page set of reproducible songs and activities for soprano recorder. It continues the study of soprano recorder from Grade Four with materials integrated through the year. The songs represent a logical progression of reviewing and introducing notes and fingerings, and the packet includes a fingering chart, worksheets, and a certificate of completion.

**Statement from Randy DeLelles and Jeff Kriske - Co-Authors, GAMEPLAN: An Active Music Curriculum for Children**
"GAMEPLAN is a K-5 elementary music curriculum predominantly based on folk material. At the time of publication (2005-2011) we were unaware some of the content had a racist history, marginalized a specific culture, or had verses with derogatory terms or adult themes.
Understanding the hurtful nature of these songs, we are in the process of identifying alternative activities and will post them at kid-sounds.com when available. Until then, please use your judgement when considering which activities you choose to share with your students.
Below is a list of the songs and rhymes in question along with each concern.
If there are other songs or rhymes you believe need to be added to this list, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We welcome your input while we work through this process as we want to remedy what was an unintentional offense."
Cumberland Gap, p. 122 (Violence toward Indigenous people)
Sea Lion Woman, p. 44 (Adult theme)
