Solfege in Kindergarten

The Kindergarten Kids have been learning about solfege singing with the hand signs on the wall, viewing clips of "The Sound of Music", and "Whacky Do Re Mi" video from Plank Road Publishing. All the kids really loved "The Sound of Music" selections I showed them, and this would be a great movie to watch as a family!  (Usually on TV around the holidays)
When I attended Music Conference at the end of October, I learned about a new solfege singing game called "Apple Tree". Kindergarten kids are pictured here playing the game!

The Room Is Filled With Risers

The MPS music room is now filled with our new risers! We are so excited to be using them in our classroom and of course they will be awesome for our music programs in February and April!
I'd like to extend a HUGE thank you to the PTO for supplementing my music budget, allowing us to purchase these risers!  Also a HUGE thank you to Mr. Ben Snyder and our custodial staff for putting them all together and moving them around! I am incredibly fortunate to teach in such an amazing district!!
