News from our Fifth Grade Classroom

IMG_6181This week in music, we are starting to learn brand new skills. For pre-K and kindergarten, we are starting to talk about how music has pitch. We will continue to learn about high and low pitches and explore instruments that make these pitches. In first and second grade, we are discovering how to play quarter notes and eighth notes. We started out just clapping different rhythms and will move into playing different instruments. In third and fourth grade, we are exploring the piano. We are learning about half steps, whole steps and special notes (sharps and flats). In fifth and sixth grade, we are learning and singing “do, re, me” and discovering how that relates to the C major scale.
