In Music, students get to build music literacy through melody & rhythm reading using voices and classroom instruments, music games, and activities. As students enter 3rd grade, their instrument of focus is on soprano recorder to help develop these skills. They continue to grow in learning this instrument into 4th grade as well, while also learning a second melodic instrument: the soprano ukulele. All grades explore many different genres and express what they are hearing through body movement and dancing as well as special props such as scarves, ribbons, parachutes, and more!

Each grade level performs one yearly concert to showcase the songs, dances, movement & instrument playing skills we have worked on throughout the school year. This is an opportunity for students to get to tell a themed story through our presentation by doing speaking parts, playing character roles, and using the creative music skills we have learned throughout the year! For concert dates and times, please check our school's monthly newsletter and the classroom teacher's newsletter, which will both contain important information.

I am so excited to get to share the joy of music with your child this school year!! If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out at rsides@jr2mail.org.

Check out my virtual music room to explore some of the concepts we will be learning in your child's time at East Elementary!
