To accommodate testing in the building, we are doing "quiet music" actives. The third graders are exploring sound and basic music creation with the following apps-
During the First 9 Weeks of school (until the beginning of Oct.) we will be learning about all aspects of Music, but students will be assessed on the following standards-
A. Skills and Techniques/Performance
M3GM.1 – Singing, alone and with others, a varied repertoire of music
a. Sing melodies in the range of an octave using appropriate head voice accompanied and unaccompanied.
C. Critical Analysis/Investigate
M3GM.6 – Listening to, analyzing, and describing music
b. Describe music using appropriate vocabulary (allegro, adagio, forte, piano, upward, downward), appropriate mood, and timbre adjectives.
Under Skills a Techniques, I am specifically assessing the student's ability to accurately sing melodies in the range of an octave (do, re mi- all the way to do) using head voice (singing voice that resonates in your head and sinus cavities instead of your chest.
In addition to these assessed standards, we will start preparing our music for the 3rd grade Veteran's Day program. I hope that each child participates in the evening program. It is a very special experience for all involved. This year it will be on Thursday, November 2nd.
