We are beginning to test for belts with recorder – the students are excited and I am looking forward to hearing them play individually! They will be working through Seesaw assignments at home to test–I hope you have downloaded SeeSaw on a home device so your child is ready to go! See Homework #5 (attached) if you have questions about this – feel free to email if you have issues.
Below are links to the final 3 homework assignments:
We have been listening to different recordings of the songs we are learning at school, and fingering along. The fun of actually playing the recorder should be happening at home! We are not recording ourselves or earning belts yet – more information is coming about this at the end of March.
Here is the link for Homework #2 and #3. Homework #3 is due the week of March 8.
The students continue to be very motivated with their recorders! We are reviewing, and working on routines for the classroom and at home. If your child seems overwhelmed, encourage them to continue to practice and work at it. It will get easier!
Homework #3 is due next week, and there is a link below.
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.
