These guys love when we move around! We worked on levels, high-medium-low, and I had students choose a level to pose on when the music stopped. We also picked different ways to move like jump, skip, skate, hop, etc.

This week students are working with quarter notes, quarter rests and eighth notes to compose music. Students are using Fruit-Loops to notate rhythms they’ve created onto their worksheet. Students then draw standard notation into their boxes and get to eat a fun treat!
