What's Up in Music?

Happy End of September/Beginning of October!

Here's a quick recap of our music activities these past few weeks:

5th grade: Fifty Nifty United States, Patriotic music, playing bells and Orff contrabass bars on a Song of Peace, and a fun warm-up song called "Proper Cup of Coffee"made popular by the group "Trout Fishing in America." The 5th graders enjoyed singing this song as it gets faster and faster!
Here's a link to Trout Fishing in America performing the song.

Proper Cup of Coffee Song

Students also began discussing our upcoming December 8th concert and gave ideas about the theme.

4th grade: We spent some time on the Song of Peace, with bell and Orff accompaniment for the international day of peace last week, and started learning the Cup Song this week.

3rd grade and 3/4 MA- See Miss Hennessy's blog for details! mshennessysmusicroom.weebly.com

2nd grade: Our students began learning music for their November 2nd concert! The theme will encompass Halloween, Election Day and Veteran's Day. They have also been playing a fun game called "Bow Wow Wow."

1/2 Multi-Age and 1st grade: These classes have been working on 'bulls-eye' solo singing with a few singing games.

Kindergarten: We have been learning new songs, working on remembering where we sit, and playing echo patterns on hand drums!

Have a great weekend, and GO CUBS!
