Here are some of Ms. Bird's 5th grade students completing their summative assessment last week, which measured their ability to put the solfege syllables "ti, do, re, and mi," on the staff. Students were able to remember the saying "If do is on a line, then mi is on the line above it." To the contrary, we also learned, "If do is on a space, then mi is on a space above it." Students then related re and ti to do to figure out the answers. This standard is Georgia Music GPS M5GM.3c, "Read melodies which include low sol, low la, do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, and high do, within a treble staff."
