Elementary Practicum Lesson
My lesson plan was geared towards a Pre-K general music class. The teacher gave me a copy of the song that I learned and created a very short lesson for. The goal of this lesson was to teach the song to the students because they had never heard it before. In addition the would learn how to keep steady beat.
Overall, my portion of the lesson went well. The students really seemed to like the song. In addition, I think the pacing of the lesson went well. The students were able to hear the song several times before I asked them to sing along. In addiction, each time I asked them to focus on something so that they had to listen to the lyrics. When I asked them to start telling me other parts of the body they could keep the beat in, they kept the beat in the area of their head, so I could have led them to other parts of the body like their knees, or feet so they could have gotten up and moved around. By the end, most of the students were singing and moving along to the beat. I think the lesson went well, and I was able to complete most of my objectives.
