What we do in Music:  

Each child carries within a beautiful instrument for making music - their own singing voice.  Each child is special, each voice is special.  It is through the many different songs we sing in class that the children learn about the elements of music.

All kinds of singing help in building a child's oral language. This is turn helps them to become better readers and thinkers.   

Kindergarten - Our Kindergarten students will sing, sing, sing this year.  We will be building a solid base of songs.  This will include songs with actions, songs that tie directly to literature, songs to aid in establishing the singing voice, and songs with thematic units.  Students will learn to keep the steady beat to their music.

1st Grade - this year we will learn how to keep a strong steady beat. We will learn about rhythm and about beginning solfege (these are the pitch names of sounds).  Students will be learning to read rhythm patterns found in the songs they sing.  Ask your students about ta's and ti's

2nd Grade - this year students will continue to expand their knowledge of rhythms. We will learn about form, and we will learn new solfege pitches. Second grade students have started to learn several folk dances as well.  Our 2nd graders are learning about the different rhythms we sing in our songs.  We are rhythm reading fools!

3rd Grade - Our 3rd grade students will learn more challenging songs, including American folksongs as well as the folksongs of other countries.  We will be learning the lines and spaces of the treble clef staff.  In the Spring, we will be learning to play tone chimes.  This is a beautiful way to teach students to read music and to remember the lines and spaces.

4th Grade - 4th grade students will hone their reading skills, using both solfege syllables and absolute pitch names when reading music on the staff.  4th Grade will learn to play recorders.  This is a fun way to learn to read music.  I will provide recorders but if you'd like to buy one, go for it!  You can get a cheap recorder from Dollar Tree or Wal-Mart.  Students will also learn to read sheet music and will be adding harmony parts to the songs they are learning.
