Welcome To Music
This year we are using Quaver’s Marvelous World of Music curriculum in all of the music classes. In the next two weeks you will receive an information letter explaining how your child can access all the exciting programs and games I use in class from their home computer. The students love the interactive activities that the Quaver program offers.
We have already played several types of percussive instruments to rhythm patterns the children have created themselves. In addition, we have used math and reading skills in several of the activities in our lessons. The kids are so engaged with the activity they do not even realize they are incorporating these into their activity.
I do plan on having a 4th and 5th grade chorus this year. Please be on the lookout for information regarding the Eagle Chorus. The 5th graders will be playing recorders this year in their music class; I will send this information home as soon as I gather information about the price of the recorder.
Finally, This year in music we will have performance day on your double music Friday. Every Friday students will have the opportunity to share their special talent with their peers. Last week we had dancers, singers, acting out scenes from movies, a comedian, piano players, karate demo, hand clapping routines and more. Students may work alone or with a group. This activity is completely voluntary Again, this is only on double Friday’s and is completely voluntary.
