K students continued to add animals to their "Listen" song. We experienced singing with body percussion in order to prepare for our cowbell experience this week. Please ask your K students what other instruments we have learned so far this year!
1st Grade: It is SLO or Student Learning Objective week in music this week for first grade.
2nd Grade: How do you know you performed a quarter note, two eighth notes, and four sixteenth notes correctly?
Students read and performed "Rumble in the Jungle" with Ms. Weingart and learned how to figure out the rhythm of a saying/poem.
3rd Grade: What kinds of rules are there when creating rhythms?
Students played a Chris Judah Lauder drumming piece called "Three Plus," using quarter notes, paired eighth notes, and quarter rests. They then began the composition process by determining America/Georgia words that correspond to the value of each notes.
4th Grade: Can you read quarter notes, paired eighth notes, quarter rests, four sixteenth notes, half notes, and whole notes? How do you make the sound you read come out of your instrument?
Students played "Ding Dong Diggidiggi Dong" on hand drums with a partner. I'd like to give a special shout out to one of Ms. Reed's students who was able to match a whopping FORTY TWO notes in a row to their correct duration value as we wrapped up class yesterday!
5th Grade: What do you do to the beat in order to come up with a rhythm?
