Hello boys and girls! Happy Thursday! I hope you enjoyed the sing-along! The Haas family had a great time putting that together for you all! I can’t wait to put another one together for after the break!

Today in Music! Everyone will use the Caterpillar Ostinato sheet, but the difficulty will be based upon your grade level! Check it out!

Preschool– will still be working on ostinatos- a repeating pattern. Today you will do body percussion. One quarter note (big brother quarter note) gets one beat. When you see the “sister eighth notes” its going to go quicker. When you get through the whole page repeat it.

Kindergarten-2nd Grade- Remember the ostinato is a repeating pattern. Try the exercise that is on the sheet. Repeat it all the way through. Quarter note gets one beat, sister eighth notes get one beat they just split the beat to go quicker. After you have repeated the exercise come up with your own body percussion lines like the caterpillar. It could be pat, stomp, snap, clap, clicking tongue. You name it! Have fun and send me any creations you come up with!


3rd-5th Grade– Try the exercise on the paper using body percussion and repeat through the whole page. We’re using quarter note and eighth notes. For your extension I would like you to try to pick 2-3 instruments that you would have for each line. If you have an instrument at home (example piano, drum, xylophone, shaker) Play the rhythms out that you come up with. You can also replace the body part you use for just that instrument and play that line. I’d love to see what you come up with!

Happy April Fool’s Day Everyone!

Today is going to be about movement in the preschool! You will need a beanbag or some form of a toy that you balance on your body. We’ve done this song before, but I want you to see if you can find the repeating patterns and have fun with it!( Parents, you have to go to the 14:49 mark in the video. There is also the bear hunt song right before if you think your child would like to do that one too!)


K-5 Song of the Week Jesus Remember Me 


Composer of the Week: Johannes Brahms, a composer from Germany, but wrote many what? He was known to write what kind music? He later followed in the footsteps of one of Fr. Don’s favorite composers. Who is/was that? Have fun listening to Brahms’ movement and see if you can complete some of the activities on the sheet!

Send me anything you want me to see!

Have a wacky Wednesday everyone!

Good morning! I hope you all are getting off to a great week! I hope you were able to get outside and enjoy the beautiful days we’ve been having!

We are going to continue with our ostinato songs this week either doing movement, body percussion, and singing. If you missed the explanation video go to Monday’s page to check that out!

Preschool: Your song today is movement with repeating each section, but the movement changes each time! Have fun!

Kindergarten-2nd Yesterday, you had a body percussion activity, today you will dive deeper into a song with vocals and movement. It’s called a “Ram Sam Sam,” while it starts slow so you can catch on it speeds up to make the ostinato fun!

3rd-5th Grade Yesterday, you may have created a melody using the Chrome Music Lab. Today, we are going to go a different direction and move into movement. I want you to use the Cardio Bucket Drumming and create your own movement to one of the songs. It only has to be a section of the song, like the refrain. Think of it as the refrain is the only part of the song. I would love to see what you came up with! Use this video below to use the rhythms provided. It just needs some movement instead of sitting to play!

K-5 Song of the Week!! Jesus Remember Me

Have a wonderful day everyone! Please send me your activities

Miss you all,

Good Monday Morning boys and girls!

Song of the Week for K-5 is Jesus Remember Me. It is an ostinato refrain that repeats and is very catchy for you to be able to pray with eventually. When we don’t have to think about the words and music we can let songs touch our hearts and minds!

The theme this week is practicing OSTINATOS! What is an ostinato you may ask? Watch this video to find out more! Then go down below for your assignment.


Preschool in your video you have a song that repeats and it also has motions that you can learn!

Kindergarten-2 Please use this body percussion ostinato video to put the ostinato pattern to practice! This is rhythmic. Throughout the week we will use our voices, bodies, and an instrument to play ostinatos!


3rd- 5th Grade After you watch the ostinato video I would like for you to practice the melody maker on Chrome Music Lab. Your melody will be unique to what you would like it to sound like. High and low pitches, repeated pitches is what will make it beautiful! Have fun!


Send me clips or pictures of any of the fun activities you try! I hope you all are doing well!

All the best,

Mrs. Haas

Week 2: E-Days! Monday, March 23, 2020

We will start with Preschool this week! Choose something in your house with permission from your parents to count. You will need 8 of the item. In my video I chose pom-poms. You can use eight Barbie dolls, cars, let your imagination go! We are counting 8 in the song for a reason: counting measures in music. 4 beats in each measure of music! It’s important that we count this timing out. So get your item ready and have some fun with Mrs. Haas!

1st- 5th Grade Song of the week. On Wednesday, March 25 we will celebrate the Feast of the Annunciation. This is when the Angel Gabriel came to Mary to tell her that she was going to have a son, Jesus. We celebrate Mary, Mother of God, in a lot of different feast days throughout the Church year. This song will be brought to our masses as one of the Marian hymns we will sing, either this year or in the future.
