What a wonderful way to address the National Standards while using your interactive whiteboard! Integrate technology into your classroom with these well-constructed interactive lessons that provide a smooth and easy way to teach improvisation and composition to elementary students (grades 1--4). Each 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. Kids will have so much fun singing and moving to the songs, playing classroom instruments, and manipulating the cartoon-style graphics on the interactive whiteboard.
