MUSIC NEWS Week of 10.11

PK: This week, students sang a song using low, medium and high pitched voices. They also determined which sounds they heard were fast or slow, and moved their bodies to the beat of songs they sang. 

Kindergarten: This week, students practiced following a leader when playing rhythm sticks and learned about non-verbal cues musicians need to use when playing all together. They also danced the Doggie Dance and moved their bodies to the beat. 

1st grade: This week, students are practicing their chosen instrument for My Many Colored Days to perform next week. We only had one music class this week because of the teacher retreat on Friday. 

2nd grade: This week, students are performing a C major scale with a partner on barred instruments. They are also practicing the clapping game Miss Mary Mac – Ask your child to teach you the clapping pattern and song!

3rd grade: This week, students are continuing their work creating a rondo. They are writing their own 16 beat rhythm, clapping it to a steady beat, then choosing an instrument to play their rhythm on. 

4th grade: This week, students are learning the Canoe Song and exploring syncopated rhythms. We only had one music class this week because of the teacher retreat on Friday. 

Orchestra: This week, students are learning the song I’m a Little Monkey using all of their fingers on the fingerboard, and uploading a bow hold video on the class Flipgrid.
