Very through direction on teaching dotted quarter notes. I like the way in which you teach in the small group and larger group settings. One area that might help round out the lesson plan to all learning types, is to allow the students to demonstrate anyway they would like what a dotted quarter note “looks” like to them. Potentially, the student would choose to draw it, make a model, sing it, or even act it out. This way you can be assured that each learning style is addressed and each student can interrupt the sound of the notes in a manner, which is unique to them. After all, music is a form of self-expression.
