The month of October marks the beginning of 2nd quarter which is hard to believe! Students in both Kindergarten and 1st grade have grown so much. I am thrilled to see and hear all the hard work and determination I have seen in my classroom.
Kindergarten class will continue with working and learning from Quavermusic.com. Currently we are working on the concept of high and low. With this unit students are learning to distinguish between high and low sounds in a song. Next we will explore how melodic direction and recognize that music can go up and down.
1st grade is experiencing melodic patterns and directions through singing, playing, creating, and moving. Students will recognize and demonstrate that melodies can move up, down, or stay the same. Starting the week of October 10th I will be introducing this year 1st grade Christmas Musical called “Christmas on Candy Cane Lane”. I can’t wait to begin this year’s musical with this group of amazing singers! It a lot of hard work for the kids but by the end they turn into wonderful performers! More information will follow later in October.
Hope to see parents come out to our Special Area Parents Night on Wednesday, October 5th @ 6:00!
