Just Like the Moon is an exploration of the moon and how we all can see ourselves reflected in the different phases. We can’t always shine our brightest. Sometimes we are shy, indecisive, or just not perfect – and that’s okay.




This guide will walk a teacher through how to utilize Just Like the Moon in a general music classroom setting. From a one-class lesson plan to a multi-day unit, this guide has information on how to add movement, teach the melodies, and teach the ostinati. Extensions – like rhythmic composition, poetry writing, and integrating technology – are also included. The graphics pack consists of all resources mentioned in the guide, including 6/8 rhythms, solfege ladders, movement cards, recorder fingering charts, xylophone visuals, and printable worksheets.

This lesson resource bundle includes:

  • Lesson plan ideas for elementary school students
  • Lesson extensions, including technology integration and cross-curricular connections
  • Graphics pack

    This is a Teachers Guide and so much more!!! It includes process, extensions, opportunities for students to create, and ways to incorporate technology. But that’s not all…it has a resource pack including 6-8 building blocks, solfege ladders for the different pentatonic modes, movement vocabulary cards, and recorder fingering diagrams. Kate Bright went above and beyond with resources you will want to use throughout your whole curriculum!!!
