“Mr. D’s Music Corner:
For January in music, Pre K, Kindergarten, and 1st grade are continuing to engage in musical play with Feierabend’s First Steps in Music “music workouts.” 2nd and 3rd will begin writing, reading, and performing rhythm patterns with standard notation. 4th grade is starting a unit on playing the ukulele. Our goal is to learn how to hold, strum, and play chords with the ukulele. 5th grade choir will begin working on music for our Spring concert that will take place on May 25th. All classes will also begin to learn Lift Every Voice and Sing in preparation for Black History Month.
