• If you are wondering about MUSIC here are a few ideas:

    Grades K-3 ---  #1 If you have internet google "Prodigies Music" --- sing, hand-signs, video lessons, etc. This is what I use in class sometimes and so it should look familiar to you. 

    #2 Make your own rhythm instrument:

       Empty toliet paper roll, paper towel roll, or wrapping paper roll

       Cover one end with strong tape or with cloth or paper and tape around on the end (make it strong)

       Put about 1 cup of rice, beans, small rocks, or ??? 

       Cover the open end with the same thing you covered the other end

       Turn on some music and have fun keeping the beat...sing along with it if you can!

    Grade 4 Recorders ---

    #1 This is TIME TO PRACTICE --- good thing you have a practice recorder at home. IF you have internet you can get a lot of help if you google what you are looking for, i.e. treble clef notes, how to count music, songs for playing recorder (most of you know notes B, A, G, E, and some have moved beyond. Find music that you can play and even try some new notes).

    #2 All of you should have copies of music from class. If you do not have internet access just work on the music you have. 

    IF any 4th grader NEEDS music I am willing to meet you at school and bring some music out to you---keeping a safe distance (of course). I have packets ready to go --- it will be the same music that we would be working on in class. Please email me: svanderpool@lc.k12.wa.us and we can work out a time for you to come by the school and pick up music.

    I hope you are ALL taking care of yourself and your family. I MISS YOU ALL!
