Music News from Martha - 4/18

I meet with PreK classes once every 2 weeks. One week I see Sandy’s class, Keiko’s class and Celina’s class (all together), the next week I see Vicky’s and Yi Guan’s classes. We sing lots of songs and learn rhymes. They have learned the difference between a talking voice and a singing voice. We have learned action songs such as “5 Little Ducks Went Out To Play,” “Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear,” and “Head & Shoulders Baby 1, 2, 3.” I collaborated with the Unit of Inquiry on "How we express ourselves" by playing short instrumental clips which sounded like happy, sad, or scared. My goal for PreK music is for them to build a repertoire of songs and rhymes for future learning, and to learn to love music class.
