In all our music classes we are working hard to wrap up our units before winter break. Our 5th and 4th grades have been working on a hand drum piece, the canon â€œCatch Me…â€. This piece is culminating with drummers in concentric circles playing the canon, while xylophones add a melodic B section. 3rd graders are finishing the Poem â€œOrff Instrumentsâ€ with xylophone accents and an instrumental coda. 1st and 2nd graders are finishing their work exploring different voices and timbres. In technology this week students are working to design a home in a virtual community we set up in Google Earth. When finished weâ€™ll then be exporting each house back to Google Earth to see this virtual neighborhood. I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe winter break.
