In Grades 4 and 5, we reviewed a song we learned earlier in the year called "The Sun is Rising." As a class, we tried to create our own arrangement while we were at the instruments. We used a variety of hand drums, xylophones and shakers to create our music. It was very fun to see how each classes' version differentiated from each other.
In Grade 3, we have started the blue belt. Lots of us are making great progress on the recorders and are trying to earn our purple belts.
In Grade 2, we learned a game called "We Are Dancing." The is a great singing game to get the kids up and moving. We also challenged our sense of rhythm with the hand drums in an echo game.
In Grades K and 1, we played "We are Dancing." We used the xylophones, however, this time we are making the echo patterns more difficult. This challenges our ears to see if we can remember tonal patterns and then perform them on our xylophone.
Have a great vacation!
