This week, Grade 2 learned a folk dance for the song “Rocky Mountain.” They also learned an accompaniment for the piece that they can play on the xylophones. The piece was sounding good by the end of the week! We learned a new note, do, to add to our collection. We now know four notes! We also began to learn about the Orchestra. We started by learning the names of the four instrument families: strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion. We learned about the string family. Next week we will learn more about the other families and more about the orchestra in general.
