This week was the first week of music for Grade 1! We had a good time learning new songs and games. We learned the difference between beat and rhythm and are now able to do the beat or rhythm with the songs we know. The songs we learned this week were “Little Sally Walker”, “Flea! Fly!”, “Old Obidiah”, and “Closet Key”. We also played with the rhythm sticks. We investigated what kinds of sounds we can make with the sticks and played along with music at different speeds. Next week we will be learning about the different sizes of musical ensembles!
