FREE MISC. LESSON - “Why Music: An Essay, and a few Questions (FREEBIE!!)”

by One Arts Infusion Collaborative
3rd - 6th Grade


FREEBIE!!
Music is sometimes considered superfluous in the scheme of learning, I would contest that it's crucial and that it adds depth, breadth, meaning, and life to learning.
This essay describes a part of one simple project enacted by a town and the beauty and the power of music as the connecting agent.
The short essay is followed by a quote to laminate and place on the wall or bulletin board as a reminder of the excellence of music.
The quote is followed by a few simple questions designed to examine "what music means to me."
One Arts Infusion Collaborative seeks to create original music and poetry that support and enhance curricular content, celebrate holidays, stir imaginations, and help make meaningful connections to learning.

************************************
I Dreaded My Third Period Class


It was cold and blustery outside, one of those days you just wanted to stay under the covers, but truth be told, I immediately thought about how I dreaded my third period class, I so wanted to turn over and forget about it for a while. I knew I had to face it, so I begrudgingly got out of bed. Alas, it was only hump day, and I had a busy schedule, so I dragged myself out of bed, had my cup of coffee and a piece of toast.

New Year, New Focus


First week back after winter break. . . what a week! With our classroom numbers fluctuating due to students quarantining or testing positive, and so much uncertainty, diving right into the curriculum was not an option. We went back to the basics: what do we need to improve in?

************************************

Under The Blotter: Engagement Questions


Need a way to encourage independent reading? I have kept these particular reading engagement questions under my desk blotter for many, many years—so many that I don’t even know who did the research for them, but I do know these questions are effective in improving reading motivation, in the person who responds, AND in those who listen to the answers.

************************************

The Beauty of Math Patterns


Some people say mathematics is the science of patterns which I think is a pretty accurate description. Not only do patterns take on many forms, but they occur in every part of mathematics. But then again patterns occur in other disciplines as well. They can be sequential, spatial, temporal, and even linguistic. Discover more about pattern in this blog post.
