The first graders began their solos this weeks using "sol" and "mi." Ask your first grader to sign and sing those pitches to you!
They are continuing to learn the Memorial School Song. We were so impressed that many of our first graders have already memorized half of the song! They also made soup to the chant Chop Chop Chippity Chop, and learned a Loose Tooth and Oh My, No More Pie chant.
Second grade students reviewed the patriotic song "America" (better known as "My Country 'Tis of Thee") and began to learn "This Land is Your Land." We sang "Come and Follow Me" in a round and learned a cute little acorn song called, "I'm an Acorn." They will be composing their very own acorn song next week so stay tuned!
Each of the third graders became part of a cross stitch project as we continued "The Thread Follows the Needle" song and activity. They also began to learn a catchy, calypso style song from Trinidad called, "Four White Horses."
Fourth graders continued to play the fun cup game. They picked up the tempo this week and also played different variations of this game which included closing their eyes. Feel free to learn and play with your fourth grader!
The Fifth grade students reviewed rhythmic notations and began to play a fun rhythmic swatting game.
5th Grade- We learned the first few pages of "Food Glorious Food" and watched a clip of this song from the play, "Oliver." We also began a fun rhythmic song called, "Hot Chocolate."
4th Grade- We learned the first few pages of "Food Glorious Food" and watched a clip of this song from the play, "Oliver." We also began a fun swing song called, "It's a Candy Cane Kind of Christmas." Can you guess the theme of our Winter Concert now?
We hope your child is enjoying music!!
