Kindergarten: Lots of Movement in March!

Mrs. Heim's class demonstrates
"Stand Up" by Teresa Jennings

If you would happen to pass by a kindergarten music class any afternoon,
you would see activities like this one!
We are marching to a song called "March" and leaping like leprechauns.
I feel the movement and singing helps students to be ready to focus on our Smart Board lessons. :)

Rhythm is Math!

The song "Rhythm is Math" by Teresa Jennings
has been the second grade 'theme song'
while we have been concentrating on rhythm.
We will be wrapping up this unit before Spring Break with the creation of five 4-beat rhythm flash cards, and some more rhythm games.
Don't forget....Rhythm Trainer
Small prizes will be awarded for winners of the drawing by March 22!
