Let it snow, let it snow, let is snow! Happy New Year folks – Welcome back! There is lots of exciting things in music class this month, let’s take a look!

The 5th and 6th graders most favorite project is in the works - Ipad Composer Projects! Students will pair up and research a composer's biography, choose their favorite song, and describe why they enjoy that song. 5th graders will be researching their favorite romantic, baroque, classical, or renaissance composer on the ipads and will be creating their very own presentation! 6th graders will be doing the same, but this time with contemporary composers – Gershwin, Berlin, Loesser, Rogers and Hammerstein – just to name a a few!

The 3rd and 4th graders were a little behind in learning recorders due to the backup of the century on their blue colored recorders. All is well now – but sadly those who ordered blue will receive green recorders. 4th grade will be reviewing B, A, G, and C in both 4/4 time and 3/4 time. 3rd grade will be learning the beginnings of recorder this month. B, A, G, practicing quarter, half, whole, and eighth note rhythms, and muich more! 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 – this time with the drums – the bug ones! I have slowly introduced boomwhackers and reading notes that are color coated by playing “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” last month. We will continue our learning by playing both “Twinkle Twinle Little Star” and “London Bridge.”

Prek and K will begin to learn how to draw music notes and continue to 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 and learn more form Mr. Bubbles!
