Things are moving and shaking in First and Second Grade Music!
What a great year we are having in first grade music! We will continue to learn about dynamics, tempo, and the instruments and their families in the orchestra. We are using popsicle sticks to begin learning how to notate rhythms.
Second graders are singing folk songs and songs from other countries. A favorite is a singing game called Pizza, Pizza, Daddy-O. Notes and rhythms. Peter and the Wolf. The timbre of instruments in the orchestra. The story and the music of the Nutcracker. The National Anthem. Songs from around the world. We are working with the Blue Game to notate quarter notes and eighth notes.
The Beat and the list goes on.
