Things are moving and shaking in First and Second Grade Music!
What a great year we will have in first grade music! We begin by reviewing loud/soft sounds and high/low voices. We will march and gallop, clap and stomp, sing and shout and whisper. And I promise that we'll do some moving and shaking.
Second graders will sing folk songs from the United States and from other countries. A favorite is a singing game called Ke Ke kulay. 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 will work with the Blue Game to notate quarter notes and eighth notes, quarter rests and 16th notes.
The Beat and the list goes on.
