Were you aware that we have new state standards for music here in Florida? They hold the children to high standards, are updated, and great for us teachers who use the Orff Process (Improvising in Second Grade- no problem)! You can go to http://www.floridastandards.org/standards/flstandardsearch.aspx and select “music” to see the new standards.
Over the next few posts I’ll be going through each of the Big Ideas and breaking them down. Please comment with questions you may have or any lesson plan ideas you have that will help meet the new standards.
