Elearning Day

Elearning Day - Music

  •  

    Circle the State with Song Info!

    I NEED YOUR MUSIC if you haven't turned it in. Keep it where you can find it to give to me! We will be singing a song possibly two at the third grading period awards assembly in a couple of months, so I'm leaving these rehearsal recordings up.  We will be focusing on 'Whisper' and 'Breakaway' for that performance. Continue to sing your part (soprano part against the alto and alto against the soprano) to make sure you still have it fresh in your mind. We will be having one additional combined practice after school when the performance is close, I will let you know. : )

    eLearning - Week of March 23rd, 2020

    *IMPORTANT!! ALL songs in K-2 that will be assigned for the extended eLearning will need to be sung for me for a grade upon coming back, so make sure you learn them! In addition to learning the songs, I would like you to keep track of all the music lessons you have completed. I want you to write your first and last name at the top of a piece of paper along with your teachers name. Now, each time you have completed a music lesson, I want the names of the songs you sang/danced to, the date you performed them and your parents signature showing completion. You need to bring this to school when we return and give this to me, so make sure you find a safe place for it with the rest of your homework!

     

    *IMPORTANT!! ALL assignments given in grades 3-6 and G/T will be due by the end of the week (look at the end of your lesson for the assignment!). You will open a Google Doc, putting your first and last name at the top followed by the name of the assignment. Next, answer all the questions asked of you, then 'share' it with me at schambers. 

    *ALL songs for grades 3-6 and G/T , from 'Go Galileo', hopefully our spring performance, May 21st, will need to be prepared and sung for a grade upon returning! LEARN ALL YOUR MUSIC!

     

    Kindergarten, 1st Grade & 2nd Grade Warm-Ups (one for each music day!)!

    We will start by singing a new song from 'The Learning Station', listen closely and sing along!

    3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th Grade General Music, G/T Assignment

    With the eLearning being extended even longer than we thought, we will still be trying to perform the songs that I am posting in the next few weeks.  There will be some repitition, but it will allow you to do an even better job.  You will be given additional written music assignments that I will require to be 'shared' with me by the end of the week.  These assignments will cover the historical/STEM emphasis covered in the lyrics as well as the musical aspects of the songs I select. After you have done the work and know the answers, open a Google Doc with your FULL name, teachers name, date, title of assignment and the answers I need to know, then 'share' it with me - schambers. 

    Everyone will need to be familier enough to perform each song assigned, hopefully on our scheduled performance date of May 21st. Remember, our abreviated performance will focus on more of a STEM theme - science, technology, engineering, math! Your new 'Knapp Knights Rap' is almost complete, you will have it next week to work on! I'm adding two more songs for the week, but that doesn't mean that you can't stop working on the three from last week! It is VERY important that you memorize the lyrics as soon as possible, hopefully we will have enough time to add the choreography that I have for a couple of them!  Work hard, enjoy learning more about these STEM subjects and it's historical people!  

    *New recordings are up!
