5th: We are working on an exciting project on the computers with Audacity. We are working to edit songs and record new parts on top of them.
4th: We have been working on playing the same song in both a duple and a triple meter. We are also transferring our knowledge of dotted half notes to dotted quarter notes. And it has been a little while, but we are getting back into playing xylophones!
3rd: We have been preparing for our performance which includes some major and minor songs, songs and poems in canons, and a few recorder songs.
2nd: We are working on writing our own simple songs and trying to sing them independently. We are also learning about the difference between pitched and unpitched percussion instruments.
1st: We are learning to read and sing different melodic contours. We are also working on simple song forms like ABA.
K: We are learning to play songs with instruments in which different people have different parts they are supposed to play. We have also been working on songs that teach us about different jobs.
