Week 12 - Our final weeks this school year - May 8 - June 2

Here is what happened in music our last week + a day together . . .

In Week 12, the Third, Fourth and Fifth Grade classes enjoyed their 2nd week of Music Olympics, with this week being focused on Melody.  Team Events included the 50 in 5 Challenge (with team scoring), Treble Clef Spell-It Relay, Treble Clef Read-It, a Treble Clef Memory game, Name That Tune and Team Play a Tune by Ear.  The Ribbon Events included the Treble Clef Spell-It Contest and the Play a Tune by Ear Contest.  On our final day of the week, the winning team received a team prize and the individual Ribbon winners were recognized in an in-class ribbon ceremony.  All in all it was a fun time with games and contests, but reviewing what we've learned about melody this year.

Kindergarten, First and Second Grade classes focused on learning Americana Play Parties and Folk Dances.  They experienced different formations including single and double circle and long-aways sets.  The play parties / dances for each class were selected from the following:

  • Shoo Fly (3 versions)
  • Skip to My Lou
  • The Heel and Toe Polka
  • Alabama Gal
  • Sashay the Donut
  • Old King Glory of the Mountain
  • Down in the Valley
  • Sweets of May
  • Jump Jim Joe
The very last week of school (following Memorial Day) each class has music one day.  5th grade will have their final Talent Time and Choice Day.  KDG-4th grade classes will be introduced to the songs that will become a part of our Flag Ceremony the first day back together next school year.
