Identifying Themes in Music (Prezi)

We have been working a lot on theme lately.  And one of the best ways I’ve found to do that is through music. This is my second Prezi and one that the kids really enjoyed.

Identifying Themes in Music

We reviewed the intro each day and did one video a day.   I did this activity throughout  Stargirl.  Since YouTube is not blocked for teachers, it was very easy for me to just pull up the video that morning during homeroom (I always look for videos with lyrics to help with reading, plus some videos aren’t always school appropriate.)

More on novel playlists (including my Stargirl playlist) and using music in class can be viewed here.

  2. This rocks, we just finished up theme, but I feel like we need to review– thank you for sharing!

    1. 🙂 Now that we’ve done this, I randomly throw videos up on the SMART Board and we find identify the theme. It’s a great filler activity and it requires little prep (if YouTube isn’t blocked!)

      1. Yes, that’s part I’m afraid of– it’s partially blocked for us… Going to test it out tomorrow. Either way, great idea! 😀
