Students will work cooperatively with partners and the class group to learn Irish step dancing. We are continuing to learn about the music from around the world. The students are encouraged to bring in and share cultural music that your family enjoys.

This month, Kindergarten will be learning about the art element “shape” through the medium of collage. We will look at art from various cultures to recognize ways that artists use shapes in their art. Students will learn to tear paper shapes, cut with scissors, and arrange shapes into complex images.

This month, Kindergarteners will move on from our picture symbol system of reading music from Rhythm Band and begin to read rhythm notation. We will also learn the words musicians use to indicate different tempo speeds and volume levels.
