Assignment 1

The key elements of music are a holistic approach towards child development. It develops the whole spectrum of student’s intellect, which involves knowledge, skills, attitude, feeling and sense. When a student listens to music, it develops skills in concentration, identifies patterns, and hears detail and reflects upon what is heard. I believe all these disciplines are necessary to be a good learner. Listening and singing helps to develop long and short-term memory. I have experienced this with a kindergarten student who was struggling to count to 20. As soon as the student was introduced with a counting song, she was very quick at learning the numbers because she sung numbers to tune. I think music also helps to develop visual skills and to think in abstract form as well.

Singing also extends literacy skills such as pronunciation of words or articulation of phrases. However, when singing, teacher need to consider the literacy level of the class, that is how well students can sing the words. When students have difficulty with words while singing they are the ones having the trouble with tune and pitch of a song. Therefore it is very important to learn the songs. I think teaching singing is like teaching any other curriculum area. Teaching and learning to sing may sound or look simple but making students to understand and know the pitch, pattern and rhythm can be challenging. Therefore it needs to be explicitly taught, step-by-step, if one has to be successful in teaching and learning of music. I also believe the choice of the song plays a vital role in motivating children to learn to sing. For example, when my daughter was in Year 5 she left her singing group because the songs were not appropriate to her age level. They were singing songs they had already learned in Kindergarten such as Old Mac Donald.

Playing instruments helps to build confidence in students. All these skills developed in music helps the students to explore other curriculum skills with confidence. When playing instruments students need to be aware how to handle the instruments and look after them. There should be some rules and expectations set up. That is that the instruments need gentle hands, what to do when it is not in use.
Students’ creativity and uniqueness are developed when composing and these provide avenues for self-expression. These creativity skills can be utilised in other curriculum areas such as writing.

Listening skills are needed in every curriculum where students needed to concentrate and focus. Therefore listening to music is a great tool, which assists students in developing these skills. Listening also helps students to discriminate between different sounds and patterns.

Musical Activities –Stage 1 Activity 1-Maths Counting
Ten in a bed
Students are learning to count back from 10 by taking away 1. They will learn the song ‘Ten in a bed’ by watching the video (see Appendix 1 ). Once the song is learned, students will get in groups of ten. They will sing and do the actions, which involve listening and concentrating. The first child taps and all the others roll over and one falls out and there will be nine left. The action of the song continues till there is one left.

Activity 2 –Recurring beat (see lesson plan)
Students will be learning a song Old MacDonald had a farm for a COG unit. The song will be accompanied with body percussion and a triangle.
Students will clap for every word in the song and use instruments for animal sounds.
Old MacDonald had a farm
(tap) (tap)x2 (tap) (tap) (tap) silent

and on his farm
(tap) (tap) (tap) (tap) he had some
(tap) (tap) (tap)

chicks (triangle - 1 beat) here(tap) chick(triangle) there(tap) chick (triangle) everywhere(tap) chick x3(triangle x3) a cow (bell) long a horse (vocal) a dog (drum) a duck (soft clap)

Musical Activity –Stage 2

Activity 1
Students in maths are making number patterns by counting in two’s, threes and fives up to 20. Students will use these patterns to create music by building rhythms with four instruments e.g. use triangle, tambourine, woodblock and cymbals
As a class they choose a different starting point for each pattern, which will be shown on each number line by a counting rule.

For example

Students will show patterns on the number line. The pattern would start from 2 and count on 2 till it reaches 20. Students will circle each number to show a number pattern, which will represent the rhythm of each instrument. The threes pattern will start from 3 and add on 3.the fours pattern will start from 2 and add on 4. There will be three groups. They will set up a sound pattern using the number pattern on the number line. Students will make the sound with the instrument at a time. Then they will all play together to create music.

Activity 2 (see Lesson plan)
This activity provides a sequence of learning based on the chant ‘When I Get Mad I Beat My Drum’ (see Appendix 2). It will use repertoire as a means for exploring the rhythmic nature of words through speech and develop students’ feeling for beat through their ability to chant and play rhythmically. It will also provide opportunities for innovation on text. Students will use body percussion (tap on desk) to experiment making drumming sounds. Selected students will drum a pattern and rest of the class will copy. Students will chant ‘When I Get Mad I Beat My Drum’. Students in groups will echo each phrase while patching the beat with both hands. Students will repeat the chant and have them join in ‘dum da dum…’
(Board of Studies NSW, 1998)

Musical Activity –Stage 3 Repeating pattern
Activity 1
Students will learn 6 times table with music (6 times table song). They will tap, clap and click to create pattern of six.
For example teacher will show the card 1x6, first child will tap twice, clap twice and click twice. Every time the pattern will start from child A and the rhythm keeps going as the teacher shows the card. 2x6 Child A – tap(x2) clap(x2) click (x2) then
Child B – tap(x2) clap(x2) click (x2)
Child C- tap(x2) clap(x2) click (x2)

Activity 2 (see lesson plan)
This activity is linked to song ‘Sun Arise’ (see Appendix 3). The students will get the opportunity to explore instrumental sound sources through listening and experimentation. The students already had some experience singing simple song and experimenting with sound and organising ideas into musical structures.
Students will learn ‘sun rise through imitation and will invent the actions to represent sun rising and the sun setting. They will use sticks and claves to perform the beat. (Board of Studies NSW, 1998)

Teaching Singing Forum
I am not a good singer at all but I believe singing in the classroom is another way of extending literacy and numeracy skills. For example it helps students in early stage to articulate words and phrases and for ESOL students to build new vocabulary. Singing helps students to develop their memory- if they can learn songs quickly, then they can learn to count numbers, recognise letters and their sounds. I think the rhythm in the music enables them to recall as it develops pattern in their head to remember.

Experiences with musical instruments.
When thinking about sounds so many things come to my mind that creates sounds. Sounds created by an object that does not please our ears we say it is a noise. However if the same object is used to create different rhythms, pitch or beat and soothes our ears we tend to say it is a great music. It gives us so much pleasure listening to different sounds. In the classroom students should be given opportunities to explore different sounds using different objects or instruments, which will allow them to understand the different types of sound can be created using one instrument. This is one of the way to engage children in music by giving them choice. Some times students in class would create rhythmic pattern with rulers and pencils and it is amazing to see they always come up with interesting sound patterns.

Repertoire for Listening
Some ideas for sound activities
ES1 – dropping marbles in the jar and students count just by listening to the sound with their eyes closed.
S1 – playing animal or different recorded sounds and children identify what sound was it. E.g. Opening of the door, water drop, horse neighs etc.
S2 - Playing music and students follow the actions. E.g. jump to the left, jump to the right
S3 – play music from different countries and students identify what music is it. Another activity would be that children to close their eyes and listen to the first sound-making source. The sound is played twice and the children are encouraged to illustrate it in whatever way they wish in the first box on their paper. The teacher assures to the children that there are no right or wrong ways to do this. Arranging three sounds in a sequence and varying the dynamic level of some of the sounds.

...Study on types of music on the Academic performance of STE students of Oriental Mindoro National High School INTRODUCTION Many students listen to music to alleviate the emotional effects of stress and anxiety when engaged in complex cognitive processing, such as studying for a test, completing homework assignments, or while reading and writing. This practice is so common that it would be beneficial for college students to understand the role that music plays on cognitive performance. Researches demonstrating the effects of music on performance are well documented, but have shown ambiguous evidence on this matter. In studies conducted to learn about the effects of musical distraction on cognitive task performance, the findings have demonstrated the idea of music improving cognitive performance (Cockerton, Moore, & Norman, 1997), but there has also been research contradicting those results, where music was found distracting for participants performing cognitive tasks (Furnham& Bradley, 1997). However, with the plethora of music genres available to music listeners, it is important to understand how different types of music impact performance. Additionally, very few studies address the interaction between the intensity or volume of the music played and its effect on cognitive processing. The present study aims to understand the effect of listening to different genres of music played at different volume levels on cognitive task performance. Many students choose to......

...struggle, I was just lazy. I learned to write better when I started college. I would practice writing more because I had to. My writing improved and I desired to write more. When a student doesn’t want to write because they feel they can’t, you can’t expect them to try. Writing is hard and messy; it takes will and caring enough to want to write. It’s that more interesting, stimulating and fun when you write about something that captures your interest to get students motivated to write. I’ll start with one good old fashion method, “motivation.” Motivation plays an essential role in developing good writing skills. Teachers want to be able to present students with the materials and tools they need to gain their interest. It’s also important for them to have access to everything they need at their fingertips. What I also think would make a student’s successful at writing is to implement writing workshops daily, into their everyday curriculum. Routines and rituals are set-up for the workshops. This gives them something to look forward too. It’s a way to work out the things that they struggle with, like not getting enough writing or expectations of how much they should write about. They need to grow on those things, motivate them to focus and brainstorm on ideas and get those ideas down on paper. Motivate them to share and reflect on what they write about. Every day, during the beginning of the class, they start with an expectation for the activity, they will listen and think......

In today’s world, technology continues to grow at a rapid pace and has therefore opened many opportunities for teaching and learning. Connecting students with digital literacy will allow teachers to support their students’ literacy growth. It is not just about the pencil and paper anymore. When we think about technology we immediately envision a computer, a tablet, or a smartphone but technology is not just those things. Televisions and radios are technology as well and can be used to support children’s literacy development in different ways. There are many different methods and programs that allow us to target all types of students therefore teachers should embrace technology and its many educational uses. This paper will look at how different types of technology can be used to support literacy in a preschool classroom. Why use technology?

There are a great number of people that graduated from high school, some are still college students that would keep following the path they started years ago in high school when they were playing on a concert band, orchestra or marching band, singing on a choir and become great and successful musicians if at least they had a teacher who could inspire them, someone who could guide them to find the freedom of expressing themselves and play music the way they feel and see it. As a future teacher, I am already concern on how and what I will give my student as tools. So, it is my responsibility to start thinking and planning of a good strategy first to get my students’ attention, motivate them and show them good ways to develop their music skills according to their inspiration. In life, there are different types of people when it comes to desire and what they want to do. Some people just try and if anything works, they just let go.

The interconnection between music and the physical and mental health of humans has been researched for many years. Research has shown that music does have positive effects on the mind. It has the power of healing certain aliments. Indian classical music has been found to have the strongest healing power in music. Music has a calming effect on the mind. It is known to speed the recovery of health aliments. It helps fight anxiety and has a reassuring effect on the brain. Music soothes the savage beast, they say, but can it calm a stressed-out mom or help someone get over an illness? Can it transport a person into the realm of imagination? Can music make you focus better and rise to your peak in competition? You probably know what the answer is already. Yes. Music can do this, and more. It can be said that music is a very powerful and awesome tool, that can have positive effects, virtually lifesaving mentally and physically when used in the right context, but has equally destructive and detrimental potential if used negatively.

Basic Mathematical Skills In Mathematics

...In the study of Hetland (2000), Graziano, Peterson & Shaw (1999) found out that using music in teaching mathematics as a tool for learning, enjoying and retaining information. Using song-sided instruction in teaching four fundamentals operation of integers will set the mood of the learners and on the same time learning the concepts and apply the skills that are taught. In the study of Johnson and Edelson (2003), Wright (2009), Courey, (2012), Still and Bobis, (2005), Tuazon (2015) showed that integrating music in mathematics is effective teaching strategy to help the learners develop greater understanding of concepts inherent across disciplines. In supports of Tuazon’s finding, Capraro (2013) found out that “music math interdisciplinary lesson had a positive effect on multiple mathematical ability areas”. In the study of Byrce (2016) show that using “music elements in teaching mathematics helps the learners to better understand the mathematical concepts and the lack of activities that will draw deep connection between music and math”. Integration of music in standard mathematics interdisciplinary class had optimistic effects on multiple mathematical abilities of the learners An, Capraro, Tillman (2013).
