Content:
 
Goals:
 1. Get children to begin opening up 2. Create a stronger appetite in them to write 3. Get them comfortable with me and other children in class 4. Get them to create personality...the start of performing
Objectives:
 -Make sure the children are completely involved even if they get silly -Keep their attention -Take mental note of anyone that is not concentrating -If I see that more than one child is getting bored, cut the amount of time on expression and have a discussion about feelings.
Materials:
 photos, cd player, a mix cd of the latest pop/r&b songs out there
Introduction:
 -Explain what will be learned in this program, what is expected from each student (behavior, participation, time), explain how we will record a song in the studio, introduce the producer: VOICE, and show my example as a performing artist (photos and cd). (10-15 min.)
Development:
 -Have each student do 20 different facial expressions.Demonstrate first. (20 min.) sad, angry, annoyed, bored, stuck-up, confident, shy, flirty, happy, know a secret, supermodel, hip-hop boy, silly, valley girl, serious, busy, sleepy, depressed, dreamy, crazy
Practice:
  -Have each student do 20 different body and face expressions. (25-30 min.) sad (no where to go), angry (grounded for a month), annoyed (little brother bother), bored (raining outside), stuck-up (rich person), confident (business person), shy (new person in school), flirty (boy you like sees you), happy (summer vacation), know a secret (someone just told you), supermodel (Tyra), hip-hop boy (bling-bling), silly (goofy faces), valley girl (like..wow!), serious (job interview), busy (have 50 things to do @ once), sleepy (just ate a huge meal), nervous (getting ready to perform in front of 1,000 people), dreamy (day-dream), crazy (lost your mind)
Accommodations:
 Give an example: example: I like Chris Brown. I like the song "Yo". It's about a highschool boy that sees a girl he's attracted to, tells his friends and wants to make the girl his girlfriend. I can relate to being attracted to guy and telling my friends. 5 lines: There's something in that smile I've seen before. It reminds me of when I first laid my eyes on... candy, gumdrops, rainbows and lollipops. All things that a kid could want. It reminds me of a beautiful, beautiful song.
Checking For Understanding:
 Find out what mood the students chose for their songs students read back the five lines they have come up with so far.
Closure:
 Give homework: HOME PRACTICE: Tell children to start making faces when immitating songs they play on radio. Practice in front of mirror. Show parents and friends. Have them ask their friends to do the same as a game for fun.
Evaluation:
 What reaction did the students first have when I told them to do the facial expressions? Then the fac & body expressions? Identify which students are the leaders. Identify the ones who are seriously trying to concentrate.
Teacher Reflections:
 How do I feel about this class so far? Do I feel that they can handle this kind of a project?
