These ten well-constructed interactive whiteboard lessons provide a smooth and easy way to teach improvisation and composition to elementary students in grades 1--4. Each lesson plan starts with a song, chant, or poem; provides prompts for active listening; invites students to improvise as a group and individually; and concludes with a rubric-measured assessment, which is an excellent way to address National Standards. Within each lesson plan in the book, you will see notated music, detailed lesson procedures, and miniature images of the screens that are included in the interactive whiteboard software. Put the CD in your computer to use the software with your interactive whiteboard. Kids will have so much fun singing and moving to the songs, playing classroom instruments, and manipulating the cartoon-style graphics on your interactive whiteboard, that they may not realize how much they are learning along the way! The software is PC and Mac compatible.
