Each week in Kindergarten, we learn a song for a letter of the alphabet. This week we are on W! And the song is Worms! We listened to the song, learned the words, and then we sang the song. THEN . . . we ATE worms!
This week, Ms. Welty came to talk to all 5th grade classes about joining band next year in 6th grade.
(Wow. Mrs. Stahl's desk is sure messy!)
If you are a 5th grader and are interested in joining band next year, don't forget the fill out the note that Mrs. Stahl gave you and return it this week. Ms. Welty will return the week after Benchmark to begin testing.
It's been a while! I've gotten busy and haven't posted much recently! Here is what we've been up to.
4th and 5th grade have been hard at work on Recorder Karate. Recorder Karate is a program where students earn "belts" to tie on their recorder by correctly playing a song for Mrs. Stahl. There are 9 songs and when they can correctly play all, they earn their black belt. We currently have 5 black belts! (three 5th graders and two 4th graders).
One of my 4th grade classes performing Old MacDonald -
1st and 2nd Grade students have been learning about rhythm - ta (quarter notes), ti ti (two eigth notes), and rest (quarter rest). After practicing these rhythms as a class, we split into groups to clasp and say the rhythms.
I hope everyone had an AWESOME
Christmas break! I did!
But, now we are back at school. And, as most of my students already know, January is Mrs. Stahl's favorite
IS ELVIS MONTH!!!Woohoo!
The "Musician of the Month" for January is Elvis
Presley! In music this month we will be listening to Elvis songs, watching
videos of Elvis singing, playing instruments to Elvis music, and looking at
pictures of his amazing career.
Here is the most loved video at Dover Elementary School. It is requested and watched more than any other.
