Happy Monday and Red and White Day!

This week you will find short activities with a small explanation. Pick one that you would like to send to me!

Practice for our Singalong this week! “10,000 Reasons/Bless the Lord” We will have a special video for this! Be sure to tune in Wednesday’s Facebook Announcements!


Xylophones are part of the percussion family. They are what we call a “pitched percussion” instrument. It can keep beat just like the piano. We can play simple and very rhythmic melodies on the xylophone. You can listen to a clip of the xylophone here:

ACTIVITY: I would like for you to make a water and glass xylophone out of glasses and water at your home. Parents supervised and letting them know you are doing this. If you have more water in the glass you are going to discover lower tones, less water means higher tones (pitches). Also could depend on your glass! Use a spoon or wet your finger to play around with them! Have fun!
