We will be playing recorders in class starting on Jan. 29. Please make sure you bring your recorder and book from home.
This 9 weeks our 3rd graders will be focusing on reading the pitches of the treble clef staff and playing and singing pentatonic patterns consistently and with correct technique. The majority of our time will be spent doing this with our recorders. Soon, students will be introduced to the basics of the recorder and then we will begin our Recorder Karate program where students can advance at their own pace and only the sky is the limit. As needed, I will post tutorial videos to help students at home. Once we start recorder, students should bring them to music every day. If any student does not have, or forgets a personal recorder, I will have the classroom set available and each child will be responsible for cleaning and using the classroom recorder. The classroom books and recorders are for classroom use only and cannot be take home.
If your child does not have a recorder and forgot to purchase one from school, I purchased extras. Send in $7.00 in a student envelope labeled recorder to purchase one of the extras I have.
