SINGING FUN and NOTATION READING
Students are working on improving their singing throughout the school year. We have been learning to activate our sing voices through vocal exploration. We are also doing a lot of echo singing to learn about matching pitches. We are also playing singing games. The student's favorite is a listening game called "Doggie, Doggie, Where's Your Bone?" Ask your child to sing a song from music class.
Students are also doing many activities which involve simple rhythm reading and writing. We often use the rhythm of words to connect back to music notation. Students are learning to listen to a word pattern and see how it would be notated using eighth notes, quarter notes,and rests.
