The Musicplay Grade 5 Student Book By Denise Gagne correlates to the Musicplay Grade 5 Teacher Guide (available separately, item 805030). This series presents a rare concept in elementary music classroom texts - softcover student books, priced so that your students can afford to purchase their own!
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 have your students really excited about learning music! The separate teacher guide includes reproducible pages for the written exercises so that the student books can be used for many years.
Written activities include practice naming notes (using letter names and solfa), create sound effects for a song using unpitched instruments, create variations on a theme, visit websites to learn more (cultural information, instruments, etc.), create your own verses to a song, and more.
