Live Loops Poetry: a GarageBand project for early learners
Here in the US, April is National Poetry Month, a time where educators and learners can celebrate the important place poetry has in our lives. As a former elementary music teacher and tech coach, I saw this month as the perfect time to collaborate with classroom teachers, merging literacy skills with music creation — thus the inspiration for Live Loops Poetry: a GarageBand project for early learners.The idea is simple, follow poetic forms to create music using GarageBand for iPadOS.
There are four different poetic structures to choose from.Each project teaches foundational GarageBand skills such as downloading additional sounds, editing loop titles, arranging and sharing, while allowing students to learn “the rules” that dictate the poetic form.
To best support all learning styles, the book features:
- Step-by-step instructions
- Media galleries with callouts
- Video demo of a final project
I’ve always ❤️ learning experiences that provide our students with the ability to see themselves in the project. Now with Live Loops Poetry, our students can hear themselves in the project as well.
Live Loops Poetry is available here on Apple Books.
I can’t wait to hear (and see) what your students create.
