In 5th grade, we are continuing to hone our ukulele skills. As of the past couple classes, we have added a couple new songs such as "Can't Stop the Feeling", and "All of Me". It has been a lot of fun seeing the students get more advanced at this instrument as the weeks have gone on!
In 3rd and 4th grade, we have been working on different rhythm activities that utilize both quarter notes and eighth notes. This week, we discussed how many beats each rhythm gets and practiced playing them on our drums.
In 1st and 2nd grade, we have been doing a variety of different singing, movement, and rhythm activities. We have gotten the chance to perform songs both as solos and with friends. This week we interpreted the piece "Aquarium", from "Carnival of the Animals", through movement.
In kindergarten, we have been doing similar activities as 1st and 2nd grade but on a more fundamental level. We have gotten the chance to use both the xylophones and the hand drums which has been a lot of fun!
Next week, we will most likely be starting and preparing our Winter Concert songs!
