Integrating the creative arts into instruction is a strategy that can be engaging and motivating for young children. Music can be used as an engagement technique or a part of the instruction to help differentiate the learning. Singing, instruments, or listening to music are just a few suggestions of how to integrate music into a lesson plan.

Use the “COE Lesson Plan Template” and one or more literacy standard and objective from your unit outline in Topic 3 to create a lesson plan for your field experience classroom.

The lesson plan must:

  • Include clear objectives that align with the selected standards.
  • Integrate literacy and music to increase engagement.
  • Use various teaching strategies to increase engagement and learning.
  • Include developmentally appropriate interactive technology to enhance learning.
  • Include formative and summative assessments that are aligned to the selected standards to provide feedback throughout the lesson and assess student learning of the standards/objectives.

Support your lesson plan with a minimum of two scholarly resources.
