This is a great print and go plan for 3-5. Students will read a book about the history of music notation and the story of the historical figure, Guido d’Arezzo. Students will review some historical terms, answer discussion questions about the book and then decode a short Gregorian chant music example. Finally, an early finisher Guido themed rhythm coloring sheet is available.
This goes perfectly with the FREE and EDITABLE Sub Plan Template!
