Reach for the Stars is a collection of 10 songs, lessons, and activities for the elementary music classroom. These lessons can be used in various grade levels throughout the year. Teachers can also choose to combine songs for a full performance list. These lessons incorporate singing, playing, movement, rhythm reading, composition and much more. Children will joyfully make music as they are actively engaged in each music experience.
Within each lesson, the teacher can choose which portions of the process work for their students. As the Teacher you do not have to go in order of the process listed. Nor do you need to incorporate every part of the process. These are merely ideas that can spark creative music making in your classroom.
