Fourth grade classes continued learning about African American Spirituals with "Wade In The Water", and "Dry Bones", and we also started listening to the Lemony Snicket story 'The Composer is Dead" for our orchestra instruments unit.
Students in our 4/5 classes continued work on their concert music, while third graders listened to four different examples of spirituals, and played their recorders with the spiritual "Train is a comin'".
Our primary students sang Valentine's day songs, passed beanbags to the steady beat, played a bordun on Orff instruments, and enjoyed doing the "Valentine's Dance" a German folk dance that's a real favorite! Whew! What a busy day!
Have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy President's Day.
