In our fifth grade writing curriculum students learn about the process of writing a personal memoir. For this unit we decided to integrate music and writing. Students learned about how to identify the tone or mood in their piece of writing by finding text evidence. In music students learned about the major and minor chords, and identified which would fit best with their writing pieces. Finally, students used the app Garageband to create a piece of music that would be a soundtrack for their memoir.
