Hello everyone! 

 HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
We are looking forward to a great year of learning & performing music in Music Class!!
COMING SOON!! (Paid for the Lynchburg-Clay Music Boosters) A performance by the group Step Afrika from Washington DC.


Find out some things we are learning by just asking them~
ASK ME (your child)......
Kindergarten: To tell you about how we have discovered the new music comparative words "Smooth & Bumpy" and experienced them by letting the music tell us whether to be a smooth snowflakes or bumpy ice.  We have also hopped on a train and run from a bear!!  We did our Happy Dance when we tricked the bear and sang our "Wash Your Hands" Song before we ate our "snack".  We even learned that if we sang our "ABC Song" when we washed our hands, we have cleaner hands!  They also might ask you to help them with our American Sign Language alphabet signs too!!
1st Grade: To show you their movement words for DIRECTION and PATHWAY.  You could even turn on a piece of music and let them move and show you how it is done:).
2nd Grade: To tell you the story about the robin in the barn and act it out for you!!  Also, have them show you the new song they created and read it for you!!
3rd Grade: To tell you about their new words Initiator, Oscillator, and Amplifier.  These words are how an instrument makes their sound. Soon we will be making our own instruments to connect to their Science Sound Unit!!
4th Grade: To show you their new recorder assignment. We learned our new note "D" and are working on learning "12 Bar Blues". We will begin improvising in Jazz style soon.  Have them show you how to practice using their 3 Practice Steps.  We are also starting the Classical Period (1750-1825) of Music and experiencing music from that time period.
5th Grade: To sing songs from the Age of Explorers to connect with their Social Studies Curriculum. We will also work on more concepts using Dalcroze Eurythmics and have met 2 new solfege members who have purchased houses on Melody Hill.  Have them tell you what they know!!

Remember to check out their Google Classroom and explore their Virtual Music Class!!  
One of their Google Classroom Folders is entitled MUSIC Room~ALL Students. 
 In that folder there is a link MOVE IT.  Check it out:)

 

Have a great week and keep singing!

Musically yours,

Mrs. Tyler

FIND OUT HOW MUSIC HELPS YOUR CHILD
IN MANY WAYS~

Wired for Sound: The Essential Connection Between
Music and Development
By Cynthia Ensign Baney  
The most widely reported research was conducted by psychologist Fran Rauscher and physicist Gordon Shaw at the University of California-Irvine in 1994. The goal of the research was to discover the connection between music and upper-level math and science skills (Rauscher, 1996a). Test groups of three-year-olds participated in an adult-led daily singing time or weekly keyboard lessons. The third group, known as the control group, did not receive music training of any kind. While the small motor skills of most three-year-olds would make successful keyboard lessons an improbability, the results of incorporating music into the curriculum were very positive. After eight months, every child who participated in a music-training program increased in his or her spatial intelligence by an average of 46 percent over the control group's six percent increase. The children that showed the most dramatic improvement were the disadvantaged.

5) Stay in your seats unless otherwise directed.
GRADES
Grades are based on Behavior/Participation, Assessments and paperwork.
 
Behavior/ Participation Grade
These grades will be labeled behavior/participation on our website.  
Your child will receive a 100 % for every day in music class without 
having a name and check on the board for not following the rules. 
 They just need to follow the rules and do their best.
Ways to have points taken away:
-a check during music class (see discipline policy)
-not cooperating or not participating in class
Ways to earn extra credit points
-I usually pick 2-4 students for exceptional behavior and class participation.  These students are recognized a Super Star Musicians.  They will receive an extra 100 for music class that day along with their reward.
Paperwork & Assessments:  Any paperwork can be revised for a better grade.  Assessments can not be retaken, but extra credit work is available upon request.
Note:  If a class is missed for an excused absence, a field trip, snow day or vacation, the student automatically gets credit for that day.

Ohio Standards for the Arts-Music
OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM
Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
