This week, in grades 2-5, our new side board words were: Phrase, Mallet, and Round. With these three words in mind, we learned our new song "Train is a comin'." Once we learned to sing the song, we added instruments to the mix. We layered four different rhythms on top of each other so, in the end, we created our own ensemble!
In K-1 this week, we learned a new singing game called "Charlie over the Ocean." This game is great because it gives everyone in the class a chance to lead with a solo! This game gives the chance for the students to be the song leaders rather than just having the teacher be the leader all the time, which is important to me.
