3rd Grade has been reviewing concepts from 2nd grade. Here's a video and some pictures of students playing a game and practicing solfege!
3rd, 4th and 5th graders learned about band and orchestra instruments! Students completed an instrument scavenger hunt and participated in music centers all about the orchestra!
Third graders did an great job singing with the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra! Check out a couple of videos on CLI music facebook page!
I can't wait for next year when we will learn some new songs to sing with the orchestra!
In March, students are learning a new rhythm- 16th notes that we count as "tika-tika." Ask your student about "Alligator Pie!" We are also learning a folk dance called "Old Brass Wagon." We're also practicing our solfege, so, la and mi, and will be reviewing do and re.
Third graders are so excited about our upcoming interactive link-up orchestra concert with the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra! Our field trip to the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center to see the TSO is Thursday, February 16th. Check out some of the videos below to see what we are learning! We are singing WITH the TSO! We will be sitting in the audience along with 1000 other 3rd and 4th graders from other BA schools while we sing along with the orchestra! (in other words- we won't be going on stage.) It's going to be a fabulous, rocking concert! (Because the auditorium will be packed- this is a field trip for students and teachers only.)
Don't forget, the family concert that parents and students can attend is February 26th 2:15PM at Union PAC. You can still purchase tickets here!
Parents, watch this video to learn more about the Link Up program!
Students, you can practice our opening song, "Come to Play" with this video! Don't forget which part you sing!
Watch this video to practice the Latin for "O Fortuna" by Carl Orff.
3rd grade has been having a great time learning about instrument families, practicing the solfege, do, re, and mi, and learning about our March and April composers of the month!
3rd graders have been playing a fun game called "Apple Tree" to review and practice so, mi and la! Take a listen to their wonderful singing voices below!
During November 3rd grade has been having lots of fun playing games and learning new songs! We learned a song to the nursery rhyme Jack Be Nimble and we played xylophones with the song. We finished our military branch songs and sang for Veterans during our Veteran's Day assembly. Finally, we've been playing a singing game called We are Dancing that has a fun chase game! This song helped us review solfege notes sol, mi and la. We also added xylophones to this song!
This month in music class, we are learning the songs for the different branches of the military to sing at our Veteran's Day assembly! We are learning how to read half notes, half rests, and playing a simple drone on the barred instruments. We are also learning about composer, Camille Saint-Saens.
