With the school year well under the way the PC music room is the place to be!

Both Kindergarten and 1st grade finished their first unit of Best/Steady Beat.  We learned that Beat- is the heartbeat of music and Steady Beat- stays the same and helps us stay together.  Both grades then took their first music assessment the week of 8/17. 

Kindergarten is now working on Whisper, Talk, Shout, and Sing- how we use our voices.  1st grade is now working on Meter- how we count and move to different meters.  Assessment on both of these units will take place at the end week of 8/24.

This year’s Reading Celebration is right around the corner!  I will share the date as soon as it is set in stone.  Our school wide theme this year is Space.  All grade Kindergarten- 5th grade will be singing “I Think my School’s a Spaceship!”   Below is a PDF of the song that you can share with your student if you wish.  Sorry cannot share the music due to copyright laws. 

FYI- Music assessments are given after 3 lessons in a unit.  These assessments are part of Quavermusic.com . The assessment is on the whiteboard in my room and I read all question and answers to the students.   All assessments are given on bubble sheet for the students to fill out and then Gradecam scores all tests for me.  For this reason I do not send them home as all you would see is letters colored in.  If you have any questions about these assessments and/or your students score please feel free to contact me.

Just keep Singing!
