Essential Content/ Objectives
Essential Content:
1. Tonal Memory Attendance/Warm Up
2. Learning Targets
3. Dynamics
4. Hakuna Matata
Knowledge Objectives:
1. Students will understand matching pitch
2. Students will understand and recognize various music learning targets.
3. Students will understand what dynamics are.
4. Students will be able to recognize learning targets and dynamics within Hakuna
5. Students will understand steady beat when playing percussion instruments along
with Hakuna Matata
Performance Objectives:
1. Students will accurately sing the attendance song on the correct pitch level and
with the correct melody
2. Students will be able to identify learning targets.
3. Students will be able to explain dynamics.
4. Students will be able to recognize learning targets and sing appropriate dynamics
when singing Hakuna Matata.

5. Students will play percussion instruments to the steady beat in Hakuna Matata.
Objectives/ Essential Question:
1. Students will display proper use of tonal memory
2. What are the music learning targets?
3. What are dynamics?
Essential Content:
o *Music Learning Targets- Different musical symbols, notes, and definitions that are
pulled for the Gordon County Music Pacing guides. They include things such as
notes, dynamics, clefs, direction of notes, etc.
o *Dynamics- The volume of music identified by specific symbols.
* Definitions- created by Katherine Dobson
B. Materials for Student Use
o Piano
o Active Board
o Document Camera
o Bose Sound System
o Microphone
o Ukulele
o Computer
o Learning Target Flashcards
o Various Percussion Instruments
o SOM Recordings, Book, and CDs
C. Activate and Pre-assess Students Prior Knowledge
1. Tonal Memory
Students perform the Attendance Song regularly. I will listen for pitch accuracy and
see how well directions are followed.
2. Music Learning Targets

The second grade has regularly discussed the various music learning targets. I will
ask several general questions regarding notes, rests, and dynamics to activate
students knowledge and pre-assess their knowledge level.
3. Dynamics
Dynamics are part of our regularly discussed music learning targets, but I will be
teaching more in-depth this lesson. I will pre-assess and ask various definitions for
dynamics vocabulary words. I will ask when certain volume levels would be
appropriate (i.e. whisper voice and yelling voice).
