Music Lesson Plans: September 2-6
Our song of the month, K-4, is “America”.
Kindergarten: We will use rhythm instruments to play the beat and review our four voices: speaking, calling, whispering, and singing.
1st Grade: We will practice moving to the beat.
2nd Grade: We will practice moving to the beat and clapping rhythms. We will listen to a section of Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” to go along with their current Science unit.

Our 3rd and 4th grade Composer of the Month is John Philip Sousa. Our listening selection this week will be “Stars and Stripes Forever”.
