Happy November to you all!
Thank you all for celebrating Halloween in true Halloween fashion with costumes, parades, songs, dances, and games! The students had so much fun, but so did I! What a Faboo-lous Program and day!
Now that Halloween is over, we will continue to learn our musical concepts such as treble clef, lines and spaces, dynamics, and rhythm through fall themed activities in singing, playing instruments, and dancing.
In the preschool, we will be making our very own shakers out of water bottles and corn kernels, while singing songs Thanksgiving themed songs like “Five Little Turkeys Sitting on the Ground.” We will also be able to play on the xylophone this song, as we started to learn “Five Little Pumpkins.”
In Kindergarten, we will work on the lines and spaces on the treble clef through the theme of “Turkey Treble.” Students will also recognize notes and rests and color by note.
In K-5 we will celebrate and honor our veterans on Nov. 9 through singing American songs such as The Star Spangled Banner, America the Beautiful, and American Tears. We are learning the importance of these songs and who and why we honor our veterans and active military who serve.
In grades 1-3 it is that time to start preparing for our Christmas program. Each class is going to learn an instrument 1st- colored handbells, 2nd- the dulcminer, and 3rd- handchimes. Each grade will get to showcase what they learn over the next 8 weeks at the Christmas program. Students will learn traditional Christmas carols and be able to portray the Nativity of our Lord with the Christmas Story.
In 4th- 5th grade we will prepare for liturgies, learn musical concepts through fall themed activities, and study famous composers. Students will also get opportunities to play instruments such as dulcimers and hand chimes.
