Just "Chillin"in Music Class!
Hard to believe that we are halfway through January! Time flies when you're busy and happy! :)
5K classes are singing snow songs (since we finally have some), hearing snow stories, and working at Groovy Shapes on the Smart Board (our music concept interactive software). We will soon become "rhythm composers" using quarter notes, quarter rests, and beamed eighth note pairs.
1st grade classes are working on rhythm concepts as well as preparing for our program!
The program, entitled "We're Making Music" on February 19, 2015, will feature each class in a song on the riser grouping for prime photo opportunities for parents! But as I constantly remind the kids, everyone sings every song! More information will be sent via Infinite Campus when the program time is closer!!
2nd grade classes are delving a bit deeper into the rhythm concept! I'm loving that we can use the iPads for worksheets and practice! It saves a LOT of trees! :)
Program preparation is also happening for 2nd graders! Entitled "Winter Days", the program will be presented on February 24, 2015. As with the 1st graders each 2nd grade class will be featured on the riser grouping. I'm also putting together something new for the "finale"....
