Grade 2 Music Lesson Plans for December/January – Pitch – Pentatonic C Major Scale


Teach your Grade 2 class all about the pentatonic scale with this easy to use, low-prep lesson pack.

Teaching music without any experience or training? YOU CAN DO THIS.

Anyone can teach music effectively even if:

  • You don’t have any music experience
  • You don’t have any instruments, textbooks or fancy equipment
  • You don’t have time to plan elaborate lessons

Music-By-Month is a low-frills-but-high-quality music curriculum that provides quality lessons for students and quick and easy explanations for teachers.

December/January’s lesson plans focus on: Pentatonic C Major Scale
* This does not include any holiday curriculum. Since many music teachers are focussed on concerts and/or seasonal music in December (and since school holidays shorten these two months), December & January are offered as a combined “month”.

Each Music-By-Month package includes:

  • a 4 lesson progression (approx. 30 min in length) with EVERYTHING YOU NEED to teach the lessons effectively
  • Clear, concise instructions – no long “teacher’s college” style plans to wade through!
  • Printable instructional materials in colour AND blackline
  • A powerpoint presentation file for easy delivery of lessons
  • Assessment suggestions

All you need to deliver these lessons are:

  • A computer with speakers
  • the ability to print/copy sheets for students
  • a smartboard/projector
  • THAT’S IT!
  • A xylophone or other pitched percussion instrument will make delivering these lessons easier, but a link to a virtual instrument is also provided as an alternative

This package was created based on the Ontario Curriculum, but will likely align with other curriculums as well.
