We've been having fun so far this month as we roll into winter! Only 2 more weeks until break! Kindergarten, First and Second Graders are learning about Singing vs Speaking voices, High, Middle and Low space for movement, and some of the holiday celebrations around the world. We also have continued to explore many of the Unpitched Percussion instruments like the Rattle and Jingle Families. Also, this month, we will be listening to music from the Nutcracker Ballet and doing several fun activities! Many classes have earned their first Game Day for "STAR" Behavior in music class. Here are some cute pictures of some of the students playing the "Museum" game. Check out the slideshow below to see some cool and creative statues and some Kindergarteners dancing to "March" from the Nutcracker.
