Have fun coloring your new puppet show pages! (Link to download below!)
No parents next week.
Parents, thank you for being so consistent and supportive to your kiddos. You help me, as the teacher, to add another layer of knowledge each week because
you have so nicely cemented the previous week’s concepts and skills. Keep up the good work! Your kids will thank you for this. You’re creating smarties!
Baby Step, Leap
We sing, dance, and notate on the staff board a step and a leap when we sing this song. The students are subconsciously learning intervals. In the second
year, we will bring this knowledge to their conscious mind by labeling the steps and skips.
Waltz of the Flowers
Today I performed our new puppet show for the whole class! This activity helps train our ears to hear patterns and how music is put together. We call this
We used Echo Ed to give the children a chance to independently imitate a melodic pattern. Singing develops the ear too! Ooooo Halloween
Ooooo Halloween allows us to hear in our heads (audiate) the beats that aren’t played aloud. This activity subconsciously teaches the students how to feel
a steady beat and anticipate the beat. It's so fun!
