String Update and Assignment (plus lunch group photos!)

Fourth Graders
4A, 4B, 4C:  All fourth grade students worked on a new song for the Spring Concert - Strings Will Rock You.  They are trying to improve their reading skills, so for this song, please don't write in note names/fingerings!  I also gave them another concert song, Final Countdown.

Assignment for 4th graders:
  • Strings Will Rock You - we will be playing this in orchestra this Thursday!
  • Pages 15/16 - students should work on these pages next week.  We won't have a lesson on Monday due to MLK Day, so this will help them stay on track.

Fifth Graders
5A and 5B:  

Assignment for 5th graders:
  • Strings Will Rock You
  • D Scale:  Half notes, then quarter notes, then eighth notes...followed by sixteenth notes if you can!  
  • Final Countdown

Here are some pictures from the lunch group we had back in December. We were celebrating all of the hard work and practice that the students endured leading up to the winter concert.  I'm so proud of them!
