In 5th grade, we have been continuing our ukulele journey. We have been practicing the chords: C. F, G/G7 and Am. In order to practice these chords, we have been playing songs such as, "Best Day of My Life," "I'm Yours," and "Riptide." I am looking forward to seeing continued progress as the year goes on!
In 3rd and 4th grade, we are making our own Orff arrangements of a song called, "The Sun is Rising." First, we learn the song, and then we took the same song over to our xylophones. After we finished on the xylophones, we added new instruments, such as hand drums and the rainstick, to complete our arrangement.
In Kindergarten through 2nd grade, we have been doing a variety of activities, such as movement games, circle games and pitch exploration. At the end of class, we have been exploring the hand drums and the xylophones through different activities, such as "Poison Rhythm."
