Remote Learning Schedule/ Expectations


Mrs. Walker will be providing musical ideas and suggestions on a weekly basis for all elementary grade levels and is asking that you spend some time each week doing something music-related.

 

I've listed some general ideas of music learning below that can encourage musical experiences individually or as a family!

 

Sing a song! --- That can be with a YouTube video including music, or in the car, with the radio, or nursery rhymes!

Play an instrument! --- If you have an actual musical instrument around, like a keyboard, guitar, or something else, you can let them play with that, experience the sounds, learn how it works, etc. If you have an older student or family member who knows about or has an instrument, they can spend some time teaching them about that particular instrument. 

Make an instrument! --- You can do this out of plastic spoons, a plastic Easter egg, and some dry beans or rice and make a homemade maraca! You can use paper plates and dry beans and have them decorate and color the plates, staple the edges together and make a tambourine! You can even just get the pots and pans out of the cabinet and use some metal spoons to make your own percussion section!

Dance! --- You can have dance parties in your living room! Dance/movement is a big part of music. You can put on a Zumba video and count it as PE too! You can put on a Just Dance video and have them follow along! Or they can come up with their own dance moves to go along with their favorite song!

 

Providing students with music enrichment doesn't have to be hard and most times it can be a fun activity for the whole family!

Below your teachers have assigned the activities for each week and given opportunities for extensions to the learning.

KINDERGARTEN - 5th GRADE

It's the last week of school! We are keeping it simple this week! I want you to SING! Take a little drive with your family and jam out to the radio! Do some family karaoke! Practice your favorite songs! Sing to your siblings! Sing to your grandma! Whatever you do, just keep singing!

Since summer starts at the end of this week, I just want to encourage students and families that music exposure can be easy! It is as simple as singing, listening to music, dancing, dance workouts, playing instruments. Just don't stop looking for opportunities to continue being musical. I hope you all have an amazing summer and I cannot wait to see you all hopefully soon! Stay happy and healthy and musical! :)
