This week students in 1st grade and 2nd grade are learning about how the elements of musical compositions create meaning by listening to classic works such as flight of the bumble bee and ballet of the unhatched chicks. While listening, students perform activities that connect to specific musical elements such as timbre, rhythm, and dynamics.
Students in 3rd through 5th grade are finishing their rhythmic notation projects and decorating Halloween rhyme posters. The students have created their own original rhymes and set them to their own rhythmic compositions. 3rd graders through 5th graders are now learning to speak their rhythms with body movements and dance. 3A and 5A are performing Stand! for our assemble with the theme of integrity.
