Grade 3 completed work on an integrated unit that included Literacy, Music and Art. In music class we began with haiku poetry that they had written during classroom lesson time and added rhythm, melody and sound effects. Last week students performed their pieces in class. The final compositions have a 3-part form - 1) playing the original melody; 2) reciting the haiku with sound effects; 3) singing haiku while playing melody. Here they are!
In Kindergarten this week we have been working with stories and how we can use music to enhance them. Here's a short clip of some moments from K1.1 performing Gingerbread Man followed by some Just Dance to "What Does the Fox Say?". Enjoy!
