K4, K5, 5th and 6th Grade
In K4 and K5, we have continued learning how to move around the room using types of movements (high, middle, and low space, curvy and straight pathways, and open and closed shapes). We have improvised melodies to a chord progression with the ukulele and many of us shared our created songs. This is a continuation of our creativity in music. During the month of March, we will also be preparing a few songs and folk dances to share with our families and friends during the spring concert.
In 5th and 6th grade, we performed the story of The Grasshoppers and the Ants to the classroom teachers and to Ms. Arrasmith. The students sang, chanted, and played barred instruments. In the month of March, students will be preparing material for the upcoming spring concert. We are going to learn 3 different folk dances, two circle dances, and a square dance. We also will learn a piece on the barred instruments. Finally, we are working on four pieces to share during our spring concert. The theme for our concert focuses on our place in the world and we can’t wait to share it with you!
