Mrs. Shepard's Music
Kindergarten, First Grade, and Third Grade
Dear Monroe Families,
Before the Monroe Olympics, third-grade students spent time learning about composers and characteristics from the Baroque period. We created drawings to represent each of the movements from Vivaldi's Four Seasons.
In addition to rhythmic elements, students will also be reviewing keywords related to dynamics and expression. Songs and games for this week include The Goldfish, Walk and Stop, Freeze Dance, 4 color rhythm, and Lucy Locket.
Songs and Rhymes for this week include March of the Dinosaurs, Here comes a Bluebird, The Lunchbox song, Put the Beat in Your Feet, and a listening activity called Gymnopede. We will also use the picture book Strega Nona by Tomie dePoala to reinforce musical concepts covered this week in class.
