Welcome back to music! I am so excited to begin another year of music making with Kindergarteners, First Graders, and Second Graders this year! This year, most of our songs will follow an OCEAN theme. Get ready for some S.O.S (SONGS OF THE SEA!). Check back each month to get a pre-view of the songs students will be learning in music class.
In September, Kindergarteners become familiar with the music room with the songs "Let's Make a Circle" and "Snail, Snail". They learn about their four voices: whisper, speaking, singing, and shouting in "4 Voices". They learn how to be an echo in "Hello (Echo) Song", and have a chance to say their name in a creative way into the magic microphone!
First Graders are welcomed back to school with "So Glad/Whose Got the Beat?" and review being an echo in "Hello (Echo) Song". Students also recall "Bubble Bubble" from the book "Froggy Learns to Swim" as we dramatize and play instruments to "Froggy Goes to School" by Jonathan London. In the book, Froggy tells all of his classmates what he/she did over the summer - learned to swim!
Second Graders will recall the song "So Glad/Whose Got the Beat?" from their time in first grade music. Each student will have a chance to review Tonic music notes and sing what they did over the summer. Then they will learn about what "my aunt" did over the summer in the silly song "My Aunt Came Back". If any second graders visited the beach over the summer, they will be right at home as we learn a fun dance to "Wipe Out" by the Sufaris!
