Teaching Music: Kindergarten Students Make Videos on Tempo #MusicMonday

via Just a Little More

Want to make a musical memory? Bring tempo to life by combining movement and green screens. Here are 3 green screen tempo videos for Kindergarten made by kids.

We all have our students move to music played at different tempi. In a classroom with one or more iPads, it’s possible to go a step further and have students use the iPad to research and show what they know about Largo, Moderato, and Presto. We are in our fifth year as a 1:1 iPad school and our students are feeling confident using the iPad as a tool for learning, just like a pencil. We made 3 green screen tempo videos for kindergarten and awesome musical memories and it was easier than you think!

This year, we kicked it up a notch and combined a green screen background on the Explain Everything app with the students’ movement in front of and on a green screen background. We created 3 green screen tempo videos for kindergarten and made great memories together.
