4th graders started recorders this week! We are very excited –I am guessing many of you have heard Hot Cross Buns a few times at home. If not, ask your child to play it for you.
Your child should being their recorder and folder to music class. See below for more details that will be helpful for you and your student. (This letter went home this week, but I will post it again.)
Students will receive a homework assignment each week. It is due the following week, and the due date will be noted. Encourage your child to complete the assignment, practice the songs included at home, and mark their practice record.
Note that we do not always get through all of the songs in music in class. I hope this will challenge them to learn new music on their own, but if it is frustrating they should just play the songs we have learned together.
Thanks for partnering with us as we begin!
