1st Grade Music

First graders are hard at work with reading music notation! After a month and half of working with beat and rhythm, students were finally ready to be introduced to the first rhythmic values, quarter note (ta) and eighth notes (ta-di). We’ve been using language to help us understand how these rhythms work.

This month, students will be working in centers to further explore and hone their skills with reading and writing rhythm. Students will also be individually assessed. Feel free to contact me for specific information about how your child is doing!

Third Grade Music

3rd grade students are just beginning their study of dynamics. Much of this information is review from previous years, but new terminology and symbols are being introduced and students will be employing a new focus on understanding WHY we use dynamics and how they affect our emotions.
