Let’s Go to the Movies!


If you didn’t open your email newsletter yesterday be sure you do. I counted at least 6 freebie links in that email.  😉

In the newsletter I also announced the release of my newest summer camp available in my store, “Let’s Go to the Movies.” Right now it’s on sale $10 off for the first 20 teachers who purchase or until the end of the day today, whichever comes first. (hint: I only have a handful left at that discount.) There are no codes needed, so go grab it at it’s biggest discount it will be while you can.

IMPORTANT– If you purchased the camp before today and downloaded it, go and re-download (doesn’t cost anything to re-download). The mp4 file for one of the games was missing in the zip file! It is there now.

“Let’s Go To the Movies!” is a music camp or workshop program with over 8 hours of lesson plans to use with your students.

Students will experience what it is like to be a silent movie musician. (just use their music they have been working on this year). They will participate in small acting scenes. They will learn the history of the film music industry and popular film composers. There will be lots to listen and watch for as they figure out what soundtracks are appropriate to use in certain scenes. They will see what goes on behind the scenes in music and why it plays such a vital role in the movie industry. And so much more!

File includes:

-Let’s Go to the Movies- (hourly lesson plans, links, planning guide, materials checklist list, resources, etc.)

-Film Scoring Careers

-History of Music in Film

-Movie Camp Printables (worksheets, games, posters, etc.)

-Movie Composers

-Movie Listening Glyph

-Name that Movie mp4

(All in zip file- included are PDF’s and PowerPoint files)

Over 100 pages of movie music FUN! You can see a preview and purchase here.


One of the newsletter freebies I shared yesterday can easily be used as a quick supplemental activity if you have “extra” time to fill. Or you can just send it home with students to enjoy later if they want.

New to summer camps? You will want to listen to this free podcast interview, “Running Your First Summer Camp” that I did with Tim Topham. From there you will also find that I am giving a 10% off coupon code to the premium edition of Make More, Teach Less – a video course that will help guide you on all the ins and outs of running a summer camp or workshop. Code expires the end of this month!

  1. I don’t know if this has already been changed – but in the Preview at Teachers Pay Teachers, there is a page about Charlie Chapman. Could this please be changed to Charlie Chaplin? Thanks.
