Below are some PDF’s of Smart Board lessons and activities that I used in general music classes from K-6 with a short description of how I incorporated them and for what grade level.

Clock Store-Orff accompaniment for 3rd grade used to get students familiar with reading music and playing a melodic instrument.
Engine, Engine No. 9– An Orff accompaniment for 4th grade used to review reading music and playing a melodic instrument.
Form Activity-Used to introduce the topic of form to K and to review with 1st grade. Used to help students to relate musical forms to simple patterns.
