Maureen Adkins - 1st & 2nd Grade Music

1st & 2nd Grade Music

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.

Welcome to Music here at The Anthony School. I am in my 26th year teaching here. I love to teach music and hope to engage my students to love to learn. I knew from an early age that music was my passion. I received my Masters degree in Music from the University of Mississippi.
My husband, Rick, and I have 2 daughters. Sarah lives in Fayetteville, and Laura is a teacher here at TAS. I have 5 grandchildren: Lily (10), Hudson(9), Caroline(6), Claire(4), and Cate (3). I love being a grandmother! Lily is in the fifth grade and Claire is in PreK4 here at TAS. Both of my daughters were students here at The Anthony School, also. Our family and The Anthony School have been closely connected for many years!
