Because we don’t know if we’ll teach online or in person, I’m sharing sharing interactive online learning music activities.
INTERACTIVE ONLINE LEARNING MUSIC ACTIVITIES
Because we don’t know if we’ll teach online or in person, we do know that interactive activities keep students engaged and learning music concepts.
I’m extremely excited about the new types of google slides activities that I’ve been creating for my students and for you.
DIGITAL DRAG AND DROP ACTIVITIES
Mainly, I’m loving these types of activities because each student will be able to do all the activities. Whereas in the regular classroom, they would need to take turns.
These new Rhythm Activities are perfect for music activities for online learning
I think my favorite interactive online learning music activities are the new drag and drop google slides resources.
There are so many possibilities for teachers in these resources.
Here’s a short video on how to use in google apps.
Teachers can record themselves teaching the lesson and demonstrating how to use the drag and drop features.
Teachers can use the presentation and activities for small groups, individual use on tablets and for the entire class.
Sharing the activities is easy in google classroom!

VIDEO LESSONS ARE INTERACTIVE ONLINE ACTIVITIES
Interactive online learning music activities give the students opportunities to practice and respond to the materials.
That’s why I’ve been working through as many of my resources as fast as I can to create student video activities.
And, another reason I’ve been uploading more videos to the Sing Play Create YouTube Music Channel.
I’ve realized that videos are great for the google classroom and for sharing too.
Many resources now have short teaching videos or sing along videos that teachers can upload to google classroom, share and use in their online music activities.
Here are some of the new and updated interactive online music activities with teaching videos:
