Boy, we've been having fun in Music since November! Third grade has been hard at work on their Orff Performance Unit. They learned about the names of all the Orff instruments, and then learned a song and all the parts -singing, dancing, and playing instruments! Check out some of our in-class performances below!
Fourth and Fifth graders have been having a blast learning how to Beatbox and Freestyle Rap. Check out the video of fifth grader, A. M. ,who created his own his own rap, found a beat, and shared with the class!
The 3rd - 5th grade students have been a JOY to get to know the past three weeks as I began my transition to Alsup! We have been working on classroom rituals and routines, pre-assessing skills, and diving in to our first music units. 3rd grade is learning all about the Orff instruments and have learned a song "Welcome the Music" to play, sing and dance! 4th and 5th grades are starting a Hip Hop Basics unit where we are building our CONFIDENCE by cheering on our classmates who perform in front of their peers, practicing BEATS on our body drumset, and starting to work on LYRICS and FLOW with freestyle rapping. Ask your student to show you their favorite classroom Cheer/Clap!
