Ukuleles on Board!


 
Get on board! Using ukuleles in an elementary general music class can
open new experiences for your students. These fun, accessible
instruments encourage singing while promoting confidence and musical
independence. Ukuleles also provide an additional way for you to observe
student progress and assess musical understanding. UKULELES ON BOARD is
a collection of sequential lessons that illustrate how teachers can use
ukuleles along with other common classroom resources to create
engaging, robust musical activities for students. Examples are provided
for using ukuleles together with Orff instruments, recorders, a variety
of percussion and even jug band instruments. Each unit includes digital
access to step-by-step projectable lesson slides so you can project all
the visual cues your students will need. In addition to being easy to
learn and fun, the folk songs used throughout the book provide students
with cultural and historical connections. The activities and concepts
found in UKULELES ON BOARD are based on the National Standards for Music
Education. The material has been field-tested in grades 2-4, but is
also appropriate for fifth grade students new to the ukulele. This is a
valuable guide to using ukuleles to support and enhance the music
curriculum in your school. Songs include: Are You Sleeping? (Frere
Jacques!), Michael Finnegan, Buffalo Gals, Joe Turner Blues, Shalom
Chaverim, I Love the Mountains, Little 'Liza Jane, Hambone, One Bottle
of Pop, Pay Me My Money Down, Let Us Chase the Squirrel, Go Tell Aunt
Rhody, Old Joe Clark. Suggested for grades 2-5.
