What is happening in music this November?
5th Grade students are working hard on rehearsing their two-part choral music for their Veterans Day Concert, Stars and Stripes Forever; We Salute Our Veterans. The concert will take place on Thursday, November 15th at 9:30AM and 1:45PM during two school assemblies in the gym. Families and Veterans are invited to attend one of the performances as we recognize and thank all of our Veterans and those who are currently serving our country.
4th Grade has been practicing reading and writing a new rhythm, sixteenth notes. Ask your child what a sixteenth note is, how it sounds, and if they can show you how to write it!
3rd Graders just learned a new rhythm, half note. Using our half notes, quarter rest, eighth notes, and quarter note, we are creating candy rhythms in music class. Ask your child what a half note is, how it sounds, and if they can show you how to write it!
CONGRATULATIONS 2nd Graders on a great concert! All of the 2nd graders worked very hard, and the Where the Wild Things Are concert was a huge success! Way to go 2nd graders!
1st Grade has started working on reading, writing, and performing sol and mi patterns on the music staff. Ask your child to sing a song using sol-mi, or if they can write a pattern for you on the music staff using sol-mi.
Kindergartens are working on keeping a steady beat as they continue to learn new songs and singing games. As you listen to music at home, ask your kindergartner to find the beat!
To help reinforce music at home, please always encourage your child to show you new or favorite songs from music class! The more each student practices at home, the more progress they will make in music class!
