Weekly Review 12/17-12/21

I cannot believe that 2013 is just around the corner! From the music classroom to the hallways, the Winter Spirit filled the atmosphere!  Every student who wanted to, got the opportunity to participate in the Winter Caroling on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, during their music class. We had so much fun singing to all of you! Thank you so much to all the family and friends who came to support our students.

Our first grade students had so much fun singing "Jingle Bells" and learning about verse and refrain that we sang it again this week. We sang the song in sign language while closing our eyes. It was so cute to watch them do this.

The students in second grade finished watching "The Nutcracker." For many students, it was their first time watching a ballet. Because the story line is conveyed through dancing, the students had to be more attentive.

In third grade, we played Music Mad Libs. For some students, it was their first time playing this game. What is a Mad Lib? A Mad Lib is a word game. You create a new story or song by changing selected words. For example, the word had to be a noun, verb, adjective, body part, or something that someone does. It usually results in a funny story or song. The students were laughing as they sang the song that they created. The songs that they created were to the tune of "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" and "Frosty the Snowman."

**Special Note- We will be watching the Lexington Symphony perform at Carey Hall on Thursday, Jan. 17th at 9:30am. Information about the performance should have gone home last week. Please feel free to email us if you have any questions! We need chaperones so feel free to join us! 

The fourth and fifth grade students played Music Mad Libs. They are a creative bunch and we had so much fun singing their songs! They created a Music Mad Lib to the tune of, "Santa Claus is Coming to Town." 

ALL Mad Lib lyrics will be located under the appropriate grade level on the right-hand side of the blog.

Happy Holidays Everyone! We hope you have a fun and relaxing break! See you in 2013!
