Prior Knowledge and Skills:

They have been moving and singing in 6/8 time for a month or more. They are familiar with, “O, How Lovely Is The Evening” as a unison song.

MENC 6: Listening to, analyzing and describing music.

Materials:

worksheet, pencils

Objectives:

Assessing the progress of the students’ experience with 6/8 time through having them record missing rhythms in a single-line score of “O, How Lovely Is The Evening.” Reinforcing their knowledge of dotted rhythms and what value a dot adds to a (given) note.

Procedures:

This lesson would be proceeded by the class singing the song, “O, How Lovely Is The Evening.” Students would receive the worksheet and would be encouraged to remember about repeated sections in the melody and melodic rhythm–as this may help them as they are filling in missing rhythms on the worksheet.

They are to fill out the worksheet.

Evaluation:

I would be able to see what the students understand from the worksheets.
