Ms. Rownd’s class did a super job adding a “Din Din Don” vocal ostinato to Frere Jacques!
I really love this rotation’s first grade lesson, because I get to teach one of my favorite “surprise” songs (Good Night, Sleep Tight) while reading one of my favorite books, Time for Bed by Mem Fox (illustrated by Jane Dyer). Always one of the students says, “I *love* that book!”
This was one of my favorite go-to bedtime books for my own children, and I’m sure yours would love it, too. It’s available at the Cobb County Library, and very reasonably priced on Amazon:
While you read it, let your child teach you the song with its “surprise” at the end.
These are some talented students in Ms. Oslin’s 1st Grade. They are improvising an “answer” to my “question” (and doing a great job!).
Ms. Wilson’s 2nd grade meeting the first quarter’s standards of playing a melody *and* playing an ostinato…
Ms. King’s Kindergarten is meeting the first nine weeks standards of singing and imitating steady beat!
Our first chorus rehearsal will be after school on the Wednesday AFTER Labor Day. (I think that’s September 6th.) All 4th and 5th graders are welcome to stay and see what chorus is all about before deciding if it’s something you really want to commit to.
If you need a permission slip, please let me know!
(Students not going to ASP after rehearsal need to be picked up in the front circle promptly at 3:15! Students not picked up by 3:20 will be sent to ASP and you will be charged.)
Oh, 3rd grade – you just wait….
and practice THIS
for a peek at Kindergarten fixing Ms. Bryant’s shoes!
Thanks to your support of last year’s Talent Show, we are playing brand new woodblocks this year. THANK YOU!!!
Okay – You guys know I am horrible at techie-stuff. But, here it is – my first attempt to post a video. BTW – if you don’t yet have a recorder at home, practice the fingerings on a pencil. Your recorders will be here before you know it!
