Happy Holidays!

This was our last week before the Winter Break! This week KG2 practiced expressing themselves through movement and saying how music makes them feel. We danced like candy canes to the Candy Cane Dance from “The Nutcracker”. I also brought in my instrument, the euphonium, and showed them how it works and played a piece.

I hope you all enjoy your break! I will see you in January.

Back to Music with KG2!

This week was the first week back in music for KG2! I am very excited to be working with them again. This week we learned about high notes and low notes. We also played with the Orff instruments for the first time and learned their names: xylophones and metallophones! We learned to play “Bounce High, Bounce Low” on these instruments. We also learned a new fingerplay, “Little Mousie Brown”, explored our voices by following the shape of a ribbon, made up silly rhymes for the song “Down by the Bay”, played a new game, “Little Sally Walker”, and talked about emotions with “John the Rabbit”. Our songtale this week was “The Twelve Days of Christmas”.
