What We're Learning In September

The month of September is mainly a month to review and strengthen skills from previous years.  This gives students the foundational skills needed for the new skills and concepts we will be learning soon!
 
Kindergarten will experience contrasts in music such as Fast/Slow, Loud/Soft, High/Low and Beat/No Beat.  We also practice the steady beat as well as using our 4 voices: Speaking,Singing, Whisper, and Calling.
 
1st Grade is reviewing many of the skills and concepts above as well as simple rhythms "ta and Ta-di", and pitches "sol" and mi". We used the song "Lemonade".
 
2nd Grade is also reviewing "sol","mi", and preparing to learn "la" very soon.
They are also reviewing "ta" and "ta-di"  and adding quarter rest. We have learned "Here We Sit"  "Bate Bate".
 
3rd Grade is focused on "mi", "re" and "do" as well as the rhythms "ta", "ta-di", rest and  adding "ta-ah". Songs include "Rocky Mountain" and "Tideo"  They also did a great job with the movement activities for both songs
 
4th Grade is reviewing "mi", "re" and "do" preparing them to use the pentatonic scale. They are also reviewing rhythms including "ta", "ta-di", rest, "ta-ah" "re-est" and "ta-ka-di-mi".  They are singing the songs "Chatter with the Angels", and "I Wish" which was a great drumming activity.  They sounded like a middle school drum line!
 
5th Grade is reviewing al. of the above rhythms and pitches, as well as the note names of the Treble Clef.  They also will start playing recorders, which they are very excited about!!
