We had an "extra" music class with two of the first grade groups, so they composed new rhyming lyrics to "Oh My." They did an amazing job!
The second graders tested their ability to recognize the unique sounds of instruments by playing "Instrument Bingo." Students were given bingo cards with photos of different orchestral and world instruments. Then, they would hear a recording of an instrument and had to identify it based on its sound, and check their card to see if they had it. The students who got five instruments in a row earned BINGO, and got to select a special music prize from our prize box.
The third graders have continued to do the activities in our different music centers, while testing for their next belts in Recorder Karate. We are so proud of their progress so far! If your child is having difficulties, they can always come down to see us for extra help. On their instructional day, the third grade students worked on counting rhythms and sight reading Gently Sleep. We also had time to play JoyTunes! Scroll down to the bottom of this page to get more info on how to play at home.
The fourth and fifth grade students have started to record their composition projects and perform for their peers. The fourth grade projects are in ABA Form, and the fifth graders composed in Rondo Form. We will be uploading them soon!
Congratulations to all students who participated in the All-Town Band concert last night!
