Here’s what we did in February:
Week 1: We reviewed notes on the giant staff. I gave students a choice between Giant Staff Twister, Giant Staff Hopscotch, and Giant Staff Bean Bag Toss.
Week 2: We celebrated Valentine’s Day and dictated rhythms with silly Valentine poems.
Week 3: We celebrated Chinese New Year with the Sight Reading Dragon.
Week 4: We got a head start on St. Patrick’s Day. We reviewed finger numbers and learned “The Rakes of Mallow.” With some students, we also practiced our musicality by switching up the dynamics, tempo, and key signature.
