Description of Lessons 
• Kindergarten – Students will go through normal first day procedures (rules, etc.) and then be introduced to a special puppet friend in the classroom that leads through how to Echo. Students will explore a variety of voices and movements and end the lesson with reading a couple of books set to music.
• 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Grade – Students will go through normal first day procedures (rules, etc.) and then practice a fun dance song so they can practice what a “space bubble” is. Then students will be introduced to a fun “nonsense” song with a wonderful cup activity. Thought the base activity is the same, the game is differentiated in levels for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. 3rd Grade plans also include an additional icebreaker game that is great for internalizing rhythm. I do similar plans the first week to keep the procedure fun and familiar for students and easy for me to teach since there are so many other administrative things music teachers must deal with the first week! 🙂
• 4th and 5th Grade – Students will go through normal first day procedures (rules, etc.) and they will learn a wonderful cup routine to the song “Turn the Beat Around.” I use the version found in Making Music, Grade 4. The directions are editable if you choose to use a different version.

These lessons are meant to hook my students from the first day. I use the lessons to review things like singing voice, form, tempo, etc. I find that if I can give my class a reputation of “fun” then the students will buy into any lesson I give them in the future!

This is meant to be a guide for your individual situation. Substitutions for any part of the lesson is acceptable. Additional items you need to teach the lesson directly as written that are NOT included.
• “Turn the Beat Around” from the series Making Music, 4th Grade. Alternatively, you can use a version from iTunes (the plans are Editable for your needs)
• Class set of cups (plastic or disposable from the grocery store work).
• Rhythm Sticks (optional)
• Cat Puppet (I use the orange puppet from the Making Music series, but really any stuffed cat will work).
• Book (optional): If You’re Happy and You Know It
• Book (optional): Down by the Bay
• “Copycat Song” from Making Music. Alternative song link provided in resource.

(Amazon links are affiliate links.  See the full disclosure here).

Thank you to Alfred Publishing for their written permission to use the lyrics to the resource, “Turn the Beat Around” in this publication.
