I had always used music in my class, but music was a big deal at my last school. The teacher who fed into me somehow got kids to memorize lots of lyrics to lots of songs. I had no idea how she did it! I began looking for ideas and reaching out, and I found a few things. I discover I love packets with activities that are similar, but trick students into thinking it’s different. I also discovered an interpretive reading rubric from Ohio. I put all these things together and that’s where this presentation comes from!
My Friday #IWLA18 presentation, titled Music: Cloze it up!, is a collection of different activities you can do instead of a cloze activity or that you could add to a cloze activity to make their music experience more robust!
