Thirdly, it’s time to get crafty!

And if you don’t like crafty, then this really not a craft will work for you too!

Using manipulatives in the music classroom can help your students understand concepts like 1 sound on the beat, 2 sounds on the beat and 2 beats is one sound (half note).

So when you’re planning your fall music lessons and activities, be sure to get this idea from the video.

It’s an idea that’s really helped me in my teaching and with my students.
