Here are links to "Music Achievement Certificates" from specialneedsinmusic.com.

  Lesson Plans
Here is a template for lesson planning that was developed in 2013.
I suggest using it along with the other lesson plans presented below so that the teacher can customize the plans in accordance with the demands of his or her school district. By clarifying the plans and linking elements to ELA and Math standards used by the district, the teacher will be able to present a robust lesson plan that takes into account the needs of the students.

The following worksheets, with their various multi-level activities, are a blueprint for workshop lessons that enable individual pacing, independent practice and group cohesion. Students, teachers, paras and families can first listen to the selections by downloading them from the audio instructional web page or at the folk music page.

The teacher or group leader can go through the activities in a number of ways. The entire class can focus on one activity in smaller groups, or different small groups can work on different activities found on the worksheets. The smaller groups can then work together to practice the song as a whole by utilizing one activity on the sheet, or by practicing the different activities on the sheet simultaneously following their small group or individual practice session. The group can then analyses their strengths and weaknesses. These pieces are all suitable for assemblies and many school themes. The worksheets are also a useful homework tool.
