Third Grade Music Menu

4/6/2020: MUSIC MENU WEEK 3

Hello Third Grade Musicians!

Here are some choices for your music learning this week. You can choose one or all of them! Have fun and be well! Remember, I love it when you share your learning with me! You can email at r.drysdale@dover.k12.nh.us 

Warmly,

Mrs. Drysdale

CHOICE ONE

Check out this video below. How do you think each Boomwhacker is making a different pitch? Experiment with ways to make instruments at home. How can you have them change pitch?

 

CHOICE TWO

Here is a new Do, Re, Mi (G, A, B) song for the recorder. The first video is a warm-up, the second one is a new song called Suo Gan or Gently Sleep. Can you play it sweetly like a lullaby?

  • Build your instrument.
  • Play your instrument to your favorite song! 
  • Write and 8 beat rhythm using du and duday and play it on your instrument.

Week One Activities

Hello third grade musicians! Please check out the following learning activities. I can't wait to hear what you've learned! If you don't have your recorder at home, please check out the rhythm reading and movement activities!

 
For students with recorders:
Recorder Practice: Please practice Hot Cross Buns and Merrily We Roll Along (in your recorder packets or on www.recordermonster.com). 
We will be using the online tool called Recorder Monster! The student password for March is "orange." Make sure it is a lowercase o. Recorder Monster!

 

Here are some tips for at home practice:

  • Remember - left hand on top!
  • Practice should be fun. Try having mini-concerts a few times per week.

  • Recorders do not need a lot of air. Over blowing will cause a squeaky tone.

  • Leaks cause squeaks. Remind your musician to cover the holes.

  • Return the recorder to the backpack after every practice session. They will need the recorder for music class.

For students without recorders:

Rhythm Reading Fun: Play along to the rhythms with body percussion. Extension: Use a "found instrument" (spoons, pencil, box) and play along! https://youtu.be/Wk43IDUQmTk

 

Musical Movement: Take a movement break, but be sure to keep a steady beat!

I Like to Move It!
