Falling Leaves

It was another fun day in music today. Kinders focused on dynamics in music (loud, soft, getting louder, getting softer) using the "Wolf Game" and the song "Grizzly Bear." I find myself turning to fall themes -- well, it is nearly October.

We continued this autumn motif in First and K-1-2 with the song "Falling Leaves." The song emphasizing descending and ascending scales, which the kids played on the xylophones and sang while using the scarves to simulate the leaves. Very pretty.

We also had our first meet on Chorus, which was really fun -- I have a good group this year. I'll try to get some pictures of all the ensembles next week.

No school tomorrow (whew!).
