2nd Grade Music Notes

January 2020

Our Second Quarter Learning Goals

  • I will be able to follow the rules of music while singing, dancing, and playing instruments!
  • I will be able to identify instruments from other cultures.
  • I will be able to listen and identify parts of songs as same and different.
  • I will be able to identify song form (parts of songs)
  • I will be able to sing my concert songs while using good concert etiquette

Wow! What a Great Concert!

Congratulations to all of our second grade performers on a job well done! It is no small task to stand in front of a large crowd and sing 8 songs from memory, while dancing and playing instruments. Our students worked very hard on their concert and the hard work paid off!


Parents- all late DVD orders must be turned in no later than Thursday, January 9. Thank you for understanding! The cost is $15. Please send your money in to the office in an envelope with your child's name, class, and "Nutcracker DVD" on the front.

Who Is Mr. Everybody?

We are once again learning about Mr. Everybody's Musical Apartment- Mr. Everybody is a silly story that we use to help us learn how to name the notes on the music staff (those five lines and four spaces). We use the initials of the characters to learn the names on the notes. Our first test in the fall was review over Book 1 (CDEF). We are beginning to learn new notes in Book 2! The week before a test, students will get their own set of flashcards to take home and study as homework.
