DONNA’S LESSON PLAN FILES for MUSIC TEACHERS:
Each year, Donna sits down with large 12”x18” pieces of white construction paper to plan her year, one piece for each grade level. Across the top, she writes the months of the school year. Along the side, she writes “Concept of the Month”, “Lessons for Concepts”, “Special Activities,” “Composers,” “Listening Lessons,” “Songs” and “Seasonal Songs.” Then, she grids the paper, opens that grade level’s Teacher Edition, and begins to plan for the 18 week semesters at each school she teaches.
