Music - Ms. Daigle

NOID1Q02231Welcome! I hope that you're student is ready to be immersed into the world of music! Ukuleles, recorders, boomwhackers, drumming, dancing, singing, games, and theater are just some of the activities that I love to teach in class. Music is my passion and I absolutely adore sharing my love for it. The Christmas Pageants and Spring Concerts happen twice a year and showcase every grade's voice.

February 2016

Happy February! Spring is approaching that means that the Spring concerts are coming up! All students will begin to learn their songs for their concerts. Prek-2nd grade will be singing songs from the sweetest little musical called Let Your Garden Grow. 3rd-6th grade will be singing from a prideful musical called Freedom.

Fifth and sixth graders will be finishing up their composer projects for the first half of February. They will present them in class! Shortly after we will be learning and practicing sight reading rhythms and even pitches!

Third and fourth grade will continue their recorders, each class will have a written test on their recorders. Fourth grade has taken this test, but I am issuing a re-do and will be taking extra time with each student during class time. They’re doing a marvelous job! Recorders are just tricky for beginners

First and second graders will be introduced to the time signature using the song “All You Need Is Love” (Perfect for February!). 4/4, 3/4, and 2/4 will be introduced. All of these time signatures focus on the quarter note receiving one beat (east to clap to!) and show that different beats per measure can make songs or parts of songs sound very different! They will also be introduced to sight reading rhythms involving quarter notes, quarter rests, half notes, and half rests.

Pre-k and kindergarten will be continuing to learn movement games with “Splish Spalsh” and “Hop Till You Drop!” They're progressing quickly with call and response on the drums too! They're just so smart!

Enjoy these music monsters by the second grade!

January 2016

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and happy new year! New and exciting things will be happening in music class this year.

The 5th and 6th graders are putting down their ukuleles for the next month or so and will be starting their composer projects. Last year I had the students research a classical composer, but this year they will be researching contemporary composers like Taylor swift and Sam Smith. How exciting! The directions are as follows,

The 3rd and 4th graders will learn “D” this month on the recorder. They now know how to play B, A, G, and C. All students are able to play the songs in the book we’ve practiced in class up until page 11. Students will also be learning the Rondo theme with a fun activity called "Candy Rondo" (that of course involves candy)

1st and 2nd graders will continue practicing rhythm with the drums and begin to learn the notes on the staff with the boomwhackers. They will learn how to play “Twinkle Twinle Little Star” and “London bridge.”

Prek and K will also continue to draw music notes and practice call and response on the drums and boom-whackers. They’ll even color their own boom-whacker sheets to write a song! As well as learn some new fun movement games.
