What's Happening in Music & Movement?
What's Happening in Music & Movement?
Students are learning about how movement connects with several aspects of music, the concept of steady beat, and they are being introduced to two concrete pitches. They are using things like song games, instruments, visuals, and hands on manipulatives to help introduce these concepts. At the same time they're having a BLAST!
Fall Fun!
Our students are learning several fall-themed songs such as "Apple Tree," "Let us Chase the Squirrel,"
"Pass the Pumpkin," "Who has the pumpkin?" "Acorns," and "Pumpkin Stew."
What Musical Concepts are Your Children Learning?
Priest Street Students will learn the concepts of steady beat, tempo (slow/ fast), dynamics (soft/ loud), rhythm (reading and speaking rhythms such as quarter notes and eight notes,) low vs. high, singing techniques, and notes on the scale (sol/ mi). They will also learn various terms such as coordination, staccato, piano, forte, largo, allegro, presto, and many more!
GLOW Party!
GLOW Party!
Students are currently working towards a glow in the dark dance party if they collectively earn 10 music notes as a class. Music notes are earned for good behavior and attentiveness to our classroom rules. The room will be dark, they will be glowing, (with glow sticks and with excitement), and a little upbeat music will encourage them to move, dance, and have FUN!
