CSP Time Songs Procedure
n/a 11:00 Teacher explains 6 different music centers we will be working on in
class. Teacher walks through the order in which students will move
to different centers, and explains that we will have approximately 5
minutes at each center. Teacher distributes students into premade
groups, and sends them to their first center.

Students will be asked to play Sammy Sackett with boomwhackers.

Sammy Sackett Students will read the color-coordinated stick notation off of the
paper provided, knowing that the red boomwhacker is do. When
students finish playing one time through, they will switch parts,
and play again. This process will be repeated for the duration of
the 5 minutes.

Students will be asked to write mi, re, and do on the chalkboard

Staff Writing staff with magnets. Continuing to build on the staff writing present
in previous lessons, students are instructed to decide what line or
space mi will go on/in. Students then use the chant “If mi is on a
line/in a space, then do is on/in the line/space below” to guide
them in correctly placing do a skip below mi. Students are
instructed to leave enough room in between mi and do to put re in
the space/line between mi and do. Students will check their
answer with their group, and address problems if anything is
wrong. Students will repeat this process, choosing a new line or
space to put mi on for the duration of the 5 minutes, making sure
every group member has a turn to write on the board.

Students will test their knowledge of half note (long) by reading

Rhythm Memory rhythms in this matching game. Students will mix cards in the
envelope up and place them in rows with the blank side of the card
facing up. Player #1 will then flip over two cards and read the 4
beat rhythms on both cards. If they match, the player gets to keep
the cards. If they do not, the player must turn them over. The
process repeats for all players until all cards are collected. The
player with the most cards at the end of the game wins. If time
allows, students may mix up the cards and play again.
This activity gives students the opportunity to practice reading
rhythms with “long” before moving to an assessment.

Students will be assessed on their ability to read rhythms including

Assessment new rhythm “long” or half note. Teacher will present 4 different
cards with different rhythm to student, instructing them to read
each card out loud individually. Teacher will take individual
assessment grades on each student.
