Extractions: Integrate With Integrity: Music Across the Curriculum ... continued from Integrated Curriculum in the Making Thematic units are widely used in many ways, some more meaningful than others. To be effective, a series of decisions need to be made, some by the whole planning team, and others by each individual teacher. Research indicates that thematic units are more effective with children who are past the primary elementary years, even though primary teachers use this approach more than those working with older students. A thematic unit is time consuming in construction, and will require research into community resources and support. Choosing a theme must involve all teachers who will be engaged in delivering instruction. For music educators, the danger in having others determine themes is ending up with themes that are particularly unsuitable to teaching music. Creative teachers can always find a link, but some are far fetched. The theme is more powerful for students when they are also involved in decision making. Additionally, community members, parents, and administrators might be involved in the initial brainstorming and decision making. The big questions to keep asking are "Is this important for students to know Why?" The more this question is asked, and the more agreement is reached, the more powerful the entire unit will be.

Extractions: Mary Wore A Red Dress Activity This activity was designed to teach colors and went along with software designed by Don Johnston. The software CD is titled CircleTime Tales and has three activities one of which is called Mary Wore A Red Dress." It has a catchy little song to it so we designed the extension activity below to sing along with the tune. Each child in our class had a photo velcro face which we took with our digital camera.We sang the song... (child's name) wore red pants, Knave of Hearts Activity This Knave of Hearts pattern was the tear out activity in February's Mailbox Magazine . We adapted the activity to make it a visual memory game. Our plush toy heart was our "Knave" who would steal a heart when the children were not looking. The children would then have to guess which heat was missing. Shape Face Game A large face was drawn with strips of velcro on his eyes, nose and mouth. Two of all four shapes in eleven colors were made. Using

Extractions: A wide variety of instructional techniques is used to make learning a meaningful and enjoyable experience. South Carolina Curriculum Standards are addressed on a daily basis. An integrated approach is emphasized throughout the curriculum reading, math, science, social studies, and language arts are woven into thematic units. Learning strategies such as cooperative learning, critical thinking, problem solving activities, hands-on experience and the use of technology enables students to reach their full potential. Programs such as Daily Oral Language, AIMS - Activities for the Integration of Math and Science, and Math Their Way are used throughout the school. Teachers enrich the regular curriculum by writing grants on such topics as recycling, greenhouse gardening, cooking, and marine biology. A strong emphasis is placed on the individual needs of each child in every aspect of the educational program. We offer enrichment programs for academically gifted and talented students. A guidance counselor is available for parent conferences, classroom guidance, and small group and individual counseling. Individual assessment to identify specific learning disabilities or other problem areas is also provided by two resource teachers and a school psychologist. The focus placed on academics is evident by the scores received on the Palmetto Achievement Challenge Test. A copy of the most recent test data will be provided upon request.

Extractions: an interdisciplinary planning model Back to Rhythms and Ratios On the first day, we come prepared with an opening activity which we and the students can use together to assess our knowledge of rhythms, ratios and patterns. We follow the activity either that day or the next with a K-W-L debriefing period through which students can identify what they already know, what they want to know, and what they need and want to learn in this topic area. Students choose groups to research these skills and knowledge areas in order to teach the rest of the class as much as they can by the end of the week. For the next three weeks, students will work on self-generated projects in the thematic area inspired by the introductory week. Requirements for the projects: (a) the student MUST be interested in the project; (b) the project must be perceived to enhance mathematical understanding; (c) the project must be thought to be do-able in the time available.
