The outline for my First and Second Grade piano students was as follows:-
Game: – Over the Edge (found here: Over the Edge game )
Game: Candy Bingo (found here: Candy Bingo)
One of my students has allergies and couldn’t have the skittles I was planning to use so we used my shiny blue ‘stones’ instead. I got the students to write with whiteboard markers the intervals they wanted on their game boards. They were pretty good at hearing the intervals by the end of it.
Composition: These students were also given the Dinosaur Stomp worksheet (found here: Dinosaur Stomp) and we clapped it through, then they had to work out a melody to go with it. This group were able to choose the octave and notes they wanted to use. Again, they needed to end on the tonic.
Performance: Play their Dinosaur Stomp composition for parents and any students that have arrived for the next group.
