Celebrate Music in the Schools Month with this integrated lesson from ReadWriteThink. For grades K-2, this plan offers a way to adapt a single lesson for all three groups of students by focusing on different skills for each grade, but based on a single musical idea. Students practice identifying beginning consonant sounds, and add new verses to a familiar song as a whole class exercise, and finally on their own. Use this music/language arts cross-curricular lesson to increase phonemic awareness and vocabulary usage.
