dancing and playing! This year hold many exciting possibilities for us to create wonderful music together.
We have had a great start to our school year in music class! How lucky are we to be able to make music together each week!
Grade 1 has begun learning about steady beat and about strong and weak beats.
Grade 2 is learning how strong and weak beats create meter. We are having a blast using jump bands to show steady beats in our feet.
Grade 3 is learning to read the lines and spaces of the staff. They will be ready for recorders in no time!
Grade 4 has jumped right back into recorder playing and are working on earning Recorder Karate Dojo belts! Grade 5 is exploring music from Africa. To celebrate the new Orff instruments from out PTA we will be learning to play Toto’s Africa! Seriously so much fun!!!
We will focus each week on singing folk songs from around the world. We always focus on showing good listening bodies during music class.
Each week we will also have a Broadway Moment -We will be exploring a new Broadway play each month! In September we are looking at Mary Poppins!
I have included our September Newsletter below as well as some great Mary Poppins videos! Enjoy!
