5th Grade Musical Forms

Lesson 1:
Concepts:
Review ABA using a song they know

Lesson:
Sing through 50 Nifty. Page 243, CD 9-33)Have the students
describe the A and B parts- see if they can figure out where the
parts begin and end.
Look in the book at those sections- note that the key signature
changes, the tempo changes, the words change. These are all
things that show a section of music.
Use students in class to show an ABA form using color of shirts
or gender or hair color etc.
Play Take 5 (instrumental, page 214, CD 8-35) Listen the first
time through, see if they can point out where the section
change are. Warn them there is a piano introduction that is not
part of the ABA. Listen one more time and have them stand on
the A sections.
If time listen to Danza del trigo- listen for instrument changes

Canon/Round
Lesson:

Sing Music Alone Shall Live (page 92, CD 4-22) They have done
this song before. Explain it is a round and that canon is another
word that means the same thing.
Sing Ghost of John (old 5th grade book page 42, CD 2-1/2)
Oh how lovely (in 4th grade books)
Go through how it looks if you draw lines for each time they sing
It worked to have the first row turn around and the middle row
turn to face the middle so they could see when each row
started and stopped. Stand when you start singing and sit when
you stop
Old Abram Brown (5th grade page 216, CD 9-1) This is fast!

Call and response cheer- When I say Washington you say
eagles, Number 1, Blue Gold

Did we repeat back the same thing the caller said? (that would
be echo) Was there a correct response? In music there is a
correct response- whether it be length of phrase repeated
back, using similar ideas coming back etc.
