I work in a very large elementary school in a suburban neighborhood in Virginia. Our school has approximately 1100 students and is growing because of lots of new development being built around the school. My school is a "Leader in Me" school and we have lots of students eager to learn and wanting more!
My school system was the first county in my area to close during the coronavirus pandemic.
We left the school one afternoon expecting to see our students the following day when school was suddenly closed when we woke up the next morning. Although I was able to go back in a grab some of my things for distance learning, many student belongings are still in the school including their recorders that they were about to begin. I have had to rethink how I provide instruction to my students and am always looking to improve the best possible way my students receive instruction while at home. I am currently teaching music asynchronously. I record videos and have hyperdocs where the K-5 students can have music activities once a week.
My students need engaging lessons and resources to stay motivated and learning from home! My students in grades 3-5 have Chromebooks at home and I would like to provide some interactive music games and lessons from Teachers Pay Teachers for the students to do that teach concepts such as rhythm, tempo, steady beat, music symbols, high and low, note names and instruments of the orchestra. I not only would be able to use these games during distance learning but also in my classroom as a technology activity where they can practice different musical concepts.
